The Archers

Engraving, 242 x 354 mm
Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna

Michelangelo's drawing of Archers Shooting at a Herm enjoyed great popularity, which is evidenced by numerous copies. Individual artists made small changes to the original, which is the case for Beatrizet's engraving in mirror image. This engraving served as a model for a fresco in the Villa Borghese, Rome.
