Comment
Produced soon after Marcantonio Raimondi's arrival in Rome. After a lost drawing by Raphael of an ancient statue discovered in c. 1500 in Rome. According to Giorgio Vasari, this print was the one that inspired Raphael to give Marcantonio his drawings to engrave, but most scholars believe Vasari meant to refer to Marcantonio's Dido (Bartsch XIV.153.187). He borrowed the landscape at right from Lucas van Leyden's Susanna and the Elders (Bartsch VII.356.33).
