Battista Franco - Diana en haar nimfen

description

Summary

Diana, zittend op een rots in het midden, rust met haar nimfen tussen de bomen. Op de achtergrond links een sater die de godin en haar metgezellen bespioneert. Op de achtergrond rechts loopt Adonis met zijn jachthonden.

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.
