Marcantonio Raimondi - engraver - Allegorical Scene
The engraving dates to the artist’s early period when he mainly focused on mythological and religious subjects most probably rendered after his own designs. It is characteristic of noticeable outlines of bodies and parallel hatching, which only shyly models the plastic shape. The meaning of the scene has not been clearly explained yet; it is only assumed that it is an allegory of human life.
