Raimondi Marcantonio (1480 - 1534) - “ Sileno sostenuto da un giovane baccante “ con certificato d’autenticità
Gravure - Gesigneerd in de plaat - 1520/25

The ancient prototype of "Silenus supported by a young Bacchus" has been recognized since the 19th century as part of a relief that was once found at Villa Albani, in Rome.

As usual, Marcantonio did not reproduce all the elements of the old relief, but added some descriptive details such as the tree on the left side, the wine barrel, the overturned wine cup and the vine-covered "thyrsus" held by the young bacchant.

In addition, he gave the composition a pictorial character by adding a line of earth with grass and some cloud-like streaks in the sky.

The strong and expressive character of the figures and the muscular effort give the scene a certain tension, a frequent feature of Giulio Romano's paintings.

Very refined engraving in good condition.
