Comment
After Giulio Romano's fresco in the centre of the ceiling of Sala di Cesare, Palazzo del Te, Mantua. The print differs from the painting in the addition of the architecture in the background and the phisiognomy of the characters. Giulio's related preparatory drawing is in Chatsworth, inv. no. 116, while his model for the print is preserved in the Louvre, inv. no. 3546. The latter was perhaps brought to France by Francesco Primaticcio after 1531.
