The fall of Phaeton and his chariot, hit by a thunderbolt launched by Jupiter, who is seated on an eagle. At the bottom, are several nude figures and a recumbent bearded man.

Engraving by Nicolas Beatrizet, after designs by Michelangelo.
Published by Anthony Lafreri (1512-1577)

Inscription:
MICH. ANG. INV.
N. BEATRIZET. LOTAR. RESTITVIT
A.L.F.

This print is quite severely damaged. It appears that a collector has stuck down the damaged print onto a backing sheet in order to stabilize it.

Despite this damage, this is a fascinating composition, and most of the design and detail is clear.

The design is based on sketches made by Michelangelo in 1533, e.g. that in the Royal Collection Trust (RCIN 912766). It is thought that Michelangelo supervised Beatrizet's engraving.

Condition: Poor to fair condition. Stuck down onto thick old paper. At middle-left, a large area of damage in which the print surface is missing, and many areas of more minor damage. Creases. Foxing, stains and paper discoloration. See photos.

Reference: Bartsch XV.258.38 1st State (before the address of Losi)

British Museum Online Collection Museum number: V,2.110

Nicolas Beatrizet (1507/15-1573) was a French printmaker, who was working in Rome around 1540-1565. Between 1547 and 1560 he produced plates directly for Lafrery, but also other plates later came into the hands of Lafrery

Antoine Lafréry (1512-1577). French engraver, cartographer and publisher, active in Rome.
