Comment
The composition relates to a drawing attributed to Francesco Salviati in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, inv. no. 682. According to Massari 1983, the style and technique of this engraving, frequently attributed to Giulio Bonasone, has no relationship with any signed print of the artist and is closer to the engravings of Beatrizet, in particular his Death of Meleager (Bartsch XV.260.41).
