Comment
After antique paintings. The title of the series appears on a cartouche on the first plate (missing from our collection): 'Leviores et (ut videtur) extemporaneae picturae quas grotteschas vulgo vocant...' Fuhring 1990, no. 659 suggests that the original series was engraved by an Anonymous Artist between 1530 and 1540 and the present set was copied in reverse by Enea Vico and Tommaso Barlacchi around 1541. On the contrary, Miller 1999, no. 33 argues that this series is the original while the Anonymous set is the copy.
