Radierung - Signiert in der Platte - 1713

The Battle of Marignano was the last major engagement of the War of the League of Cambrai and took place on 13–14 September 1515, near the town now called Melegnano, 16 km southeast of Milan.


Johann Melchior Füssli (1677-1736) was a Swiss draftsman, engraver and etcher. He is best known as a draftsman and engraver of Johann Jakob Scheuchzer's illustrated Bible, for which he made more than 700 preliminary drawings.

Between 1709 and 1729 he created numerous New Year's Broadsides for various Zurich societies. From 1716 to 1718 he illustrated Johann Jakob Scheuchzer's “Helvetiae historia naturalis” and in 1732 his “Investigations of the Baths in Baden”. His 753 drawings for Scheuchzer's “Physica sacra” (1731–35) are an essential contribution to the scientific book illustration of the Baroque era.
