Comment
The frame reproduces the stucco frame designed by Rosso Fiorentino around a scene representing Ignorance Defeated, in the Galerie Francois I at Fontainebleau (see Zerner AF.24). Zerner mentions a monogram lower left and the date 1543. Suzanne Boorsch in Los Angeles 1994 pointed out that the executed ensemble shows differences, indicating that the drawing Fantuzzi followed was not the final resolution. Rosso's drawing for the framing probably did not include the compositions to be painted in fresco, these were drawn separately. Zerner in Paris 1972 assigned the design of the landscape to Antonio Fantuzzi, but Boorsch claims that it is more likely by a Flemish (or Flemish-influenced) artist specializing in landscapes. On this aspect, see Catherine Jenkins, Landscape in the Fontainebleau School Print, Print Quarterly XXIII (2006), pp. 111-33.
