Comment
Probably preserves a rejected idea for part of the Battle by the Milvian Bridge in the Sala di Costantino in the Vatican Palace. Bartsch claimed it was one of Jacopo Caraglio's best prints. Although the Raphaelesque origin of the composition is unquestionable and the inscription indicates him as inventor, Stefania Massari in Rome 1993 claimed that the print is evidently connected with Giulio Romano's works, especially his carton representing a Battle (École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, inv. no. 2773), and she supposes the existence of a model by Giulio. Another drawing in the Uffizi, inv. no. 377, attributed to Perino del Vaga, may be a replica of the original model, today lost.
