Bibliography: Bartsch 18 (vol. 13, p. 305) as attributed to Zoan Andrea (Italian, flourished 1475–1505); Borenius 14 as School of Mantegna; Hind 21 (vol. 5, p. 27), plate 519 as School of Mantegna; see Lambert, The Image Multiplied, numbers 27a-c. Landau believes Premier Engraver was Giovanni Antonio da Brescia (active 1490 – ca. 1520). “Both Borenius and Hind consider that this engraving may be by Giovanni Antonio da Brescia. It is based on four of the dancing nymphs in Mantegna’s painting ‘Parnassus,’ ca. 1497 (Louvre). Only nine impressions are recorded by Hind, including the present example” [quotation source unrecorded].
