ANTONIO DA TRENTO
(active c. 1527 in Bologna)
Nude Man in a Landscapec. 1527
Woodcut (two plates), 290 x 187 mm
This is a chiaroscuro woodcut imprinted on white paper from two plates in different dark colours (in this case green and black), so that it creates the impression of a drawing on coloured paper heightened with white. It was made after Parmigianino. According to Giorgio Vasari, Antonio da Trento learned this technique from Parmigianino, who was much admired in Venice.
