      MARCO DENTE (after Raphael)
      The Battle of the Reluctant Horse.

      Engraving, circa 1520. 230x370 mm; 9 1/8x14 1/4 inches, thread margins. First state (of 2), before the address of Rossi. A very good, dark and well-inked impression of this extremely scarce engraving, with strong contrasts.

      Based on a drawing by Raphael (1483-1520), now in the Devonshire Collection, Chatsworth, that was his model for the central group in The Battle of the Milvian Bridge, 1520-24, in the Sala di Constantino, Vatican Palace, Rome. Bartsch 420.
