Did you know?

A notarial document of 1564 refers to the artist of the print, Alessandro Gandini, as a "matematico" (mathematician), suggesting that Gandini likely dabbled in printmaking as an amateur rather than a professional practitioner.


This chiaroscuro woodcut was printed from three blocks in ochre and brown. It was likely based on a preliminary monochrome drawing for an altarpiece oil painting made by Girolamo da Treviso for the Boccaferri family chapel in the basilica of San Domenico in Bologna.
