Summary

Portret van Giovanni de' Medici, gevat in een geornamenteerde architectonische lijst. Het portret wordt geflankeerd door de Overwinning (Victoria) en Mars. Boven het portret wordt het wapenschild van de De' Medici familie gedragen door twee vrouwelijke gevleugelde figuren. Onder het portret twee geketende gevangenen en wapens.

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.
