Comment
Cirillo Archer in TIB claims the burin work is close to Nicolas Beatrizet's Death of Meleager. Hermann Voss in 'Kompositionen des Francesco Salviati in der italienischen Graphik des XVI. Jahrhunderts', Beilage der Graphischen Künste 1 (1912), pp. 30-37, 60-70 ascribed the design to Salviati and attributed the print to the circle of Beatrizet. Bruce Davis attributed the engraving to Beatrizet himself. Most recently, under inv. no. 1859,0806.312 the British Museum database attributed the engraving to Enea Vico by demonstrating it has a similar size and technique to Vico's Battle of the Lapiths and Centaurs made in the same year, when Salamanca published a number of Vico's prints and none by Beatrizet.
