Comment
According to Bartsch it was Giulio Bonasone's invention. Massari claims that he used eclectic sources and was obviously influenced stylistically by the frescoes of the Sala di Psiche in the Farnesina, executed by members of Raphael's workshop in 1518-19. The amorini are very close to those by the Master of the Die. The iconography of the print is ambiguous, see TIB.
