Comment
According to Giorgio Marini, the print demonstrates the influence of Giulio Romano's mannerism, whose painting La Perla had been in Verona in Paolo Farinati's time. It also reflects Michelangelo's Prophets and Sybils. The immediate character of the image has been praised by most authors. Bury in 2004 proposed that the subject may also be The Allegory of Fecundity.
