Comment
Reproduces the scene of the cartoon for the Vatican tapestries, commissioned from Raphael by Pope Leo X in 1513-14 and finished in 1516. The woodcut differs from both the cartoon and the tapestry. A drawing in the Albertina (inv. no. 192, the recto by Raphael, the verso attributed to Giulio Romano) represents different versions of the scene. The woodcut is closer to the final, more finished study by Raphael or Giovanni Francesco Penni in reverse, today at Windsor (inv. no. RL 12749). Bartsch identified the second state as Andrea Andreani's reworked edition in 1609. Sassi in Carpi 2009 lists a second state in Berlin and demonstrates that Andreani altered the blocks in the third state. There is an impression in the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica, Rome (inv. no. FN 69218), regarded as proof by Massari (Rome 1985, p. 129, no. 1a) and considered as copy in Carpi 2009. Comparing it with Niccolo Vicentino's other prints, Takahakate 2011 suggests that the present woodcut was also made by him.
