Comment
After Giulio Romano's composition painted by Girolamo da Pontremoli or Anselmo Guazzi in the vault of Loggia della Grotta, Palazzo del Te, Mantua. The print differs from the painting in the details of the figures and the landscape, for which Giulio's preliminary drawing is in the Albertina, inv. no. 323 R96. According to Massari in Rome 1993, the lack of Cupid's figure from this drawing suggests that Léon Davent used another model, brought to Fontainebleau perhaps by Francesco Primaticcio.
