Notes from Fogg Museum
Two engravings by Marcantonio Raimondi have been added recently to the Print Collection of the Fogg Museum: the Climbers, after Michelangelo, and the Judgement of Paris, after Raphael. The former is interesting especially because it is one of few contemporaneous copies of the important cartoon, now lost, which represented an episode in the war between the Florentines and the Pisans. The latter is a fine early impression from one of Marcantonio's most beautiful plates.
A print representing the Holy Family, by Altdorfer, is a gift recently received. It is one of the most charming of the plates of this important "Little Master."
