Marcantonio Raimondi’s most famous Venetian engraving was the first print to represent a nocturnal scene. Inspired mainly by a lost painting of Giorgione, Marcantonio borrowed elements from several other artists. The sleeping women, arranged to show the female nude from two viewpoints, recall Giorgione’s figures, while the monstrous creatures derive from the strange inventions of Hieronymus Bosch, and the man descending from the wall of the burning town is a citation from Michelangelo’s Battle of Cascina.
