Comment
The series was made before Étienne Delaune departed from France in 1572-73. The taste for grotesques was brought to France by the Italian artists working for Francis I. George A. Wanklyn in Los Angeles 1994 calls attention that Benvenuto Cellini, Luca Penni and Rosso Fiorentino all worked in Rome before they came to France, while Primaticcio collaborated with Giulio Romano in Palazzo del Te, the grottesques of which inspired those of the Galerie d'Ulysse at Fontainebleau. Domenico del Barbiere, Antonio Fantuzzi and Jean Mignon also made grotesque prints. Delaune preferred the type of grotesque with a dark background.
