- Curator's comments
- Passavant states that this print is after Titian, but it is in fact after Pordenone. The cutter is traditionally said to be Boldrini. Pordenone's related painting is in the Smart Museum, University of Chicago (Cohen on Pordenone, cat.77).
See also D. Rosand and M. Muraro,'Titian and the Venetian Woodcut', 1976, n.75; and David Landau in 'The Genius of Venice: 1500-1600', London, 1983, p[=print], 51, pp.345. Landau argues that it was made after Pordenone's death, and so is not a work of collaboration.
