description

Summary

Bacchus wordt gedragen door twee saters. Voor hen loopt een maenade met bekkens in haar handen. Zij worden vergezeld door twee putti. Rechts staat een boom.

Printmaking in woodcut and engraving came to Northern Italy within a few decades of their invention north of the Alps. Engraving probably came first to Florence in the 1440s, the goldsmith Maso Finiguerra (1426–64) used the technique. Italian engraving caught the very early Renaissance, 1460–1490. Print copying was a widely accepted practice, as well as copying of paintings viewed as images in their own right.
