Comment
The print was described by Vasari as a joint work by Agostino Musi and Marcantonio Raimondi, see Bartsch. It reproduces in reverse one of the ceiling compositions in the Loggia di Psiche of the Villa Farnesina in Rome, designed by Raphael and executed by Giovanni Francesco Penni in 1518. The right section of the print is close to a drawing (formerly in Chatsworth and sold by Christie's on 3 July, 1984), attributed to Giovanni Francesco Penni or Giulio Romano, showing the left side of the painting and probably used as a model for the corresponding figures of the print (Dussler 1971, pp. 97-99).
