Comment
Reproduces in the same direction Giulio Romano's design for the ceiling of the Sala degli Stucchi in Palazzo del Te, Mantua, executed in 1529-30, traditionally attributed to Giovanni Battista Scultori, but given today to Andrea and Biagio Conti. Massari in Rome 1993 supposes that the printmaker was inspired by Giulio Romano's original design, preserved in a copy in the Louvre, inv. no. 3623.
