Comment
One of six scenes engraved by Marcantonio's workshop after the lost frescoes of the Stufetta of Cardinal Bibbiena, executed by Giulio Romano and Giovanni Francesco Penni after Raphael's designs. The date on Agostino Musi's Venus Wounded by Cupid's Dart (Bartsch XIV.218.286) suggests a possible date for all the prints made after the cycle.
