About this artwork
Adamo Scultori came from a lineage of Italian engravers. He was taught by his father, Giovanni Battista Scultori, who worked with Giulio Romano, the inventor of this image. The central fish head, belonging to a mythical monster, relates the print to a secular tradition of Roman seagoing gods and beasts.
