The Suicide of Lucretia, Marcantonio Raimondi, after Rafaël, 1509 - 1514

engraving, h 212mm × w 130mm More details

The virtuous Lucretia is raped by the royal prince Sextus Tarquinius Superbus. Unable to live with the memory of this shameful act, she stabs herself to death. The Italian engraver copied the landscape with the little bridge at the right behind the desperate Lucretia from Lucas’ engraving of Susanna and the Elders (adjacent). He omitted the buildings in the background.
