Comment
After Cornelis Cort's engraving of the same year after Antonio Correggio's Il Giorno altarpiece of 1523 for the Chapel of San Girolamo in the Church of Sant Antonio, Parma (today in the Pinacoteca Nazionale, Bologna). Michael Bury in 2001 notes that prints after Correggio were few in the sixteenth century. This engraving was regarded among his best works, as many contemporary copies prove. Agostino made several changes to the painting, most significantly in the background and in the placement of the figures. Agostino's assertion of his responsinility for both the cutting and the printing of the plate fits in with the inscription of some other prints by him produced in 1586-87. Bury supposes that at this time Agostino attempted to set himself up as a printer and print dealer with a shop in Bologna.
