Antonio Tempesta 1608

Author: Antonio Tempesta 1555-1630
Year: 1620
Description: This print of the Rinocerote, improbable as it seems, is from the series Noca raccolta degli animali (1620) by Tempesta, a collection of twenty four wild animals. Its origin comes from the first of a three print series by Enea Vico published by Claudio Duchetti , 1581-86, entitled 'From the oldest picture of animals drawn in Rome'. Duchetti's source was most likely from his uncle, Antonio Lafreri, who working in partnership with Antonio Salamanca, compiled a large stockpile of prints of Renaissance antiquities that they published as 'Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae' (Mirror of Roman Magnificence) 1544-1572.
