Comment
Related to Giulio Romano's preparatory drawing in reverse, preserved in the British Museum, inv. no. Pp,2.93, for Giulio's painting today at Hampton Court, inv. no. 110, originally to be hung in the Palazzo Ducale, Mantua, as part of the series executed in 1533-34 representing the birth of divinities. Cirillo Archer in TIB claims that Massari's first state in Rome 1993 is in fact just printed from a very worn plate.
