Comment
Sylvie Béguin proposed the attribution of this design to Francesco Primaticcio and observed that it is related to his drawing in reverse in the J. F. Willumsen Museum, Frederickssund (S. Béguin, 'Giulio Romano et l'Ecole de Fontainebleau', in Atti del Convegno Internazionale di Studi su Giulio Romano e l'espansione europea del Rinascimento, Mantua 1991, pp. 45-74). According to Cirillo Archer in TIB, Jacopo Caraglio's strong influence is evident in this print. As the date of this engraving is too early among the prints made after Primaticcio, Aldovini in Paris 2004 supposed that it was executed in the milieu of Roman engravers who recorded Roman antiquities to be published by Salamanca, and suggested that Primaticcio might have executed the design for this print for this purpose during his Roman stay in 1540.
