Engraving, 408 x 275 mm. NH 179, 2nd state (of 5).
Impression of the 2nd state (of 5) before F. de Wit’s address in clouds underneath Pan. On impressions of the 4th state, the address is erased and the clouds are redrawn and thus are slightly different from before.
Very good impression printed on watermarked laid paper (Coat of Arms with Lys). In very good condition. Impression trimmed to the platemark. A tiny foxmark on the arm of the left woman and two tiny light stains; a very tiny (1 mm) scratch above Cupid’s head. Vertical printer’s crease.
This subject is engraved by Matham after Giuseppe Cesari’s fresco painted in 1594-1595 in the vault of the Loggia di Corradino Orsini, Palazzo del Pio Sodalizio dei Piceni in Rome.
