- Curator's comments
- This is the first state of the print, before much of the shading (eg on the torso of Hercules) had been cut away., and the tone block replaced with a new one.
Bartsch describes the figure being chased away by Hercules as Envy. Vasari identified her with Avarice (followed by Frommel), and states that the print is by Ugo da Carpi after Peruzzi (as the inscription suggests). No drawing by Peruzzi for this composition is known; Frommel dates the design 1522/4. The print was copied by the Master of the Die as an engraving (Bartsch XV.195.17).
