About this artwork

This print was created by an unidentified engraver, who worked in the circle around Andrea Mantegna and was responsible for a group of engravings based on the artist’s drawings. The composition is derived from Mantegna’s preparatory drawing for the four central dancing muses in a painting for the Studiolo of Isabella d’Este, the young wife of Francesco Gonzaga of Mantua.
