Comment
After Giulio Romano's painting of the Holy Family with Saints, commissioned by Jacob Fugger for the chapel of San Marco in Santa Maria dell'Anima, Rome, executed by Giulio in c.1523. Passavant lists the print's later editions by Giovanni Orlandi, Antonio Carenzano and Giovanni Giacomo de'Rossi. Although the print bears the names of two printmakers also having a publishing activity, Mario Cartaro and Michele Lucchese, the print was most possibly executed by the former and published by the latter. A drawing in the Louvre, Uffizi, inv. no. 14615F, is usually considered as the modello for the painting, amd differs from this print especially in the background. The print seems to be a precise record of the original painting, severely damaged in the 16th century and repainted later. The print appears in the inventory of Giovanni Giacomo de'Rossi in 1677, without the name of the printmaker.
