XVI century. Wash, Pencil, Pencil ground, Grey-brown ink on paper. Not on display

The principal drawn version of this composition is in the British Museum, London. The British Museum drawing was engraved by Bernard Picart in 1729). Another, weaker version of the composition is at Besançon (inv. no. 1467). The British Museum drawing is connected with Cambiaso´s great fresco in the center of the ceiling of the salone of the Villa Imperiales at Genoa-Terralba, painted around 1565.
