Comment
This is the largest and most ambitious print associated with Domenico Campagnola, made in his early career. The woodcut survived only in late impressions with the address of a late seventeenth-century publisher, Il Vieceri, who probably acquired and re-issued the original woodblocks. According to Van der Sman 2003, some of the figures, for example the nude man at right, were inspired by Marcantonio Raimondi's famous engraving after Raphael. A drawing of the same subject attributed to Domenico Campagnola is preserved in the British Museum, inv. no. 1892,0411.3.
