Agostino Carracci - Venus, Amor en sater

description

Summary

Venus ligt in een landschap. Amor zit naast haar geknield. Rechts staat een sater achter een boom en begluurt Venus en Amor.

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.
