Comment
Related to Giulio Romano's drawing in reverse (Haarlem, Teylersmuseum, inv. no. Ax46) made in preparation for the fresco executed in 1527-28 by Rinaldo Mantovano in one of the sixteen medallions for the Sala dei Venti in Palazzo del Te. Mantua. The setting of both drawing and engraving is different from that of the painting. Massari notes that the figure in the foreground of the print differs from that of the drawing and follows the Roman statue of Ariadne in the Vatican, perhaps known by Bonasone through derivations.
