The Roman engraver of the generation after Marcantonio Raimondi, named after his typical signature as Master of the Die, reproduced the tapestries intended for the walls of the Sala di Costantino in a set of four prints. The print with putti playing in a wood did not belong to his original series, but is also related to a design for the tapestries.
