Comment
This is an unusual print with completely finished and large blank parts. Most early authors attributed it to one of Marcantonio Raimondi's followers. Mariette suggested that Marcantonio began the engraving and an inferior artist continued, which opinion was accepted by Shoemaker. It is still undecided whether the design was by Marcantonio himself or Baldassare Peruzzi (related to his fresco in the Cancelleria, Rome), or both artists used a lost drawing by Raphael or his workshop for the fresco in the Vatican Logge.
