Engraving, sheet 330 x 420mm (13 x 16½"). Trimmed to platemark; nicks and tears to edges; pencil annotations. Top right corner missing.
Italian print of a painting by Francesco Furini (1604-46), a rival to Guido Reni amongst Italian baroque artists. The 1633 painting, now known as 'Hylas and the Naiads' (as shown by the manuscript annotations), is in the Galleria Palataina, Florence. It was painted for the Galli family in Florence, who as the text shows, still owned the painting at the time this print was made.
