About this artwork

Giulio Campagnola was a painter, miniaturist, engraver, and cutter of gems and type punches in Venice in the early sixteenth century. His work responded to developments in the painting of Andrea Mantegna, Albrecht Dürer, Giorgione, and Titian. In emulation of their atmospheric colorism, Giulio developed a method of engraving with flicks or dots, which produces subtle gradations of tone. Thus, he is credited with inventing the "dotted manner" print, which is exemplified in this impression of the Roman goddess of love and beauty.
