- Curator's comments
- The attribution of the original composition to Primaticcio (Bartsch) is rejected by both Dimier and Zerner, the latter suggesting the name of Luca Penni.
Jenkins, convinced by the Penni attribution, states that the composition is strongly influenced by Polidoro da Caravaggio's depiction of the same subject, which was painted on the façade of a palace in Rome — possibly the palace near the church of Sant'Agata dei Goti mentioned by Vasari. Polidoro's design is recorded in a print by Jan Saenredam (New Hollstein Goltzius, IV, no. 630). Jenkins 2017.
Offprint on verso: scene representing the death of Adonis (W,3.182).
