Philips  GALLE

Haarlem 1537 - Antwerp 1612

Slumbering Ulysses placed on the shores of Ithaca

 Engraving 240x324 mm. Rare first state of two, before the Petri's address. Lettered at bottom left "BOL. IN.". After Primaticcio's fresco in the Galerie d'Ulysse at Fontainebleau. A very fine impression. Trimmed between platemark and borderline on three sides and just outside the borderline at the botton. A short printer's crease at upper border and other minor defects and repairs but generally in very good condition.
