Comment
Earlier thought to be Giulio Bonasone's invention, until Bartsch supposed it was related to a lost drawing by Giulio Romano. According to Massari it relates somewhat to Giulio Romano's figures in the Loggia della Grotta in Palazzo del Te. The print was later published by Pietro Stefanoni and Giovanni Giacomo de' Rossi.
