Comment
After a drawing at Windsor Castle, inv. no. 0298, deriving from Giulio Romano's design after a Greek relief today in the Villa Medici, Rome (see Bober-Rubinstein no. 136), attributed by Massari in Rome 1993 to Adamo Scultori himself. The composition is related to the fresco executed ny Ronaldo Mantovano in Sala dei Cavalli, Palazzo del Te, Mantua. The plate was registered in the 1677 inventory of de' Rossi as by Giorgio Ghisi. The same subject, in side view, was reproduced in the chiaroscuro woodcut by Niccolo Vicentino, Bartsch XII.119.17. see inv. no. 6276.
