Comment
Belongs probably to Schiavone's early prints of mythological subject. According to Richardson, this print is based on an undescribed etching of the Master FP after Parmigianino's drawing in the Devonshire Collection, Chatsworth; see Popham 1971, no. 720. Richardson claims that this is one of the works in the series that was executed with a most sophisticated technique and differs substantially from the prototype.
