It was probably Marcantonio Raimondi who devised the composition from several models. The awkward conjunction of the two figures, at the areas where they overlap, is characteristic of the engraver’s composite works. A telling example of moral purism of later centuries is that the detail regarded as scandalous was scraped out from the sheet.
