Additional Information

Rome - A well-known engraving of Giovani Filoteo Achillini; Suonatore di viola da mano, by Marcantonio Raimondi, c. 1510. It was produced from a lost original painting by Francesco Francia. Around 1510, Marcantonio travelled to Rome and entered the circle of artists surrounding Raphael. This influence began showing up in engravings titled The Climbers (in which he reproduced part of Michelangelo's Soliders surprised bathing, also called Battle of Cascina). After a reproduction of a work by Raphael, entitled Lucretia, Raphael trainted and assisted Marcantonio personally. Another famous engraving, the Judgement of Paris, dated 1515 or 1516, after Raphael, became the composition source for Edouard Manet when he painted The Luncheon on the Grass. The two started a successful printing establishment under a colorgrinder, Il Baveria, that quickly expanded into an engraving school with Marcantonio at the head. Among his most distinguished pupils were Marco Dente (Marco da Ravenna), Giovanni Jacopo Caraglio and Agostino de Musi (Agostino Veneziano)
