kopergravure met de hand gekleurd in grijs, h 276mm × w 411mm. More details

Andrea Mantegna was the first Italian painter to make prints so that his work would be disseminated far and wide. This depiction of sea gods is the left half of a frieze (long narrative picture) inspired by an ancient relief. Mantegna turned this into an imaginary battle with gods and monsters, encouraged by Envy (Invidia), portrayed as a naked hag.
