The Carcass, Agostino Veneziano, after Rafaël, after Battista Dossi, c. 1520

engraving, h mm × w mm More details

The witch, riding on a gigantic carcass, is a superb example of a ‘copy–paste’ approach in printmaking. The naked sorceress was copied from an engraving by the famous Albrecht Dürer, who, in turn, had borrowed it from the figure of Envy in the print by Andrea Mantegna (see elsewhere in this gallery). As a depiction of a hideous fantasy, this certainly rivals Mantegna’s print.
