Comment
The first of a series of four (Bartsch XVII.270.20 to XVII.270.23) showing the figures painted by Pordenone c.1532-4 above the windows of the piano nobile of the Palazzo Tinghi, Udine. Cohen in 1996, II, p. 681 commented on the accuracy of Fialetti's etchings but noted they are in reverse and exaggerate the horizontality and that they introduce walls and clouds that were not present in the original. Michael Bury in 2001 found it probable that an interest in making these prints was stimulated not only by an appreciation of the inventive originals, but also by their vulnerability because of their location on the exterior of a building. This is also indicated by the decaying walls behind three of the four figures. The date of the series cannot be established.
