- Object Description
- This engraving has been attributed to Marco Dente, who would have taken the design from a drawing (likely supplied for that purpose) by the artist Giulio Romano, whose work often touches on mythological and erotic themes. Once produced, the plates from which prints like these were made, passed into catalogues and printer/publishers like Antonio Salamanca and Orazio Pacifico, where they could be frequently reworked as they were worn from the printing process over the generations. The two inscriptions on this print would have been added during such re-workings: "Ant. Sal. Exc." is an abbreviation for Antonio Salamanco Execudit, or "published by Antonio Salamanca," while Horatius Pacificus Formis, which would have been a much later addition to the image, means "at the press of Orazio Pacifico."
