Comment
Although it is generally assumed that Jan van Scorel designed the woodcut in Venice in 1520, David Landau in London 1983 convincingly suggested that the composition reflects Scorel’s later style after his two years stay in Rome. The clear influence of Michelangelo’s Battle of Cascina, which he probably saw during his travel from Rome to the Netherlands via Florence, also suggests a later date. Molly Faries suggested that the woodcut was printed in the Netherlands, but the fact that the print was later copied by Andrea Andreani might contradict her theory.
