Comment
Giulio Bonasone's signature and the date of 1544, visible in the first state, were erased from the plate and substituted with the name of the inventor. The composition is close to Giulio Romano's fresco in the Sala di Costantino in the Vatican, executed after Raphael's design. Bartsch suggested that the print follows a lost drawing by Raphael, a discarded idea for Giulio's fresco.
