From a rare group of small engravings, only found in a trimmed one without signature kept in the Metropolian Museum of Art in NY.

Engraved by: Marco Dente (Italian, Ravenna, active by 1515–died 1527 Rome)
Also called: Marco da Ravenna, Born in Ravenna, killed in the sack of Rome. Engraver, working in Rome in the orbit of Marcantonio Raimondi

After Francesco Salviati (Francesco de' Rossi) (Italian, Florence 1510–1563 Rome)
Most of his career in Rome after 1531, though with periods in Florence and north Italy 1539-48, and in France 1554-6.
Salviati is without doubt one of the great geniuses of High Mannerism.

Rare by all means and especially in this good early print quality and excellent condition.
