Parmigianino not only cooperated with the most eminent printmakers of the period, but was the first Italian painter making etchings himself. The Sleeping Cupid is a free interpretation of the slain child in the foreground of The Massacre of the Innocents by Marcantonio Raimondi and Raphael. It was one of Parmigianino’s first etchings in which he experimented with the possibilities of the technique.
