The technique of the engraving pre-dating Marcantonio Raimondi’s Roman years also reveals the deep impact of Albrecht Dürer. Although it was suggested that one of the compositions of the Bolognese painter, Francesco Francia was the source for the print, it was probably created upon the engraver’s own invention. David’s pose was inspired by the famous antique sculpture, the Apollo Belvedere.
