Cristofano Robetta (1462-1534)
Adoration of the Magi (After Filippino Lippi)
Engraving, on laid paper, with watermark of a bindle/key, an excellent impression, thread margins trimmed to the platemark along the right hand side, platemark 300 x 278 mm. (11 3/4 x 10 7/8 in), sheet 307 x 283 mm. (12 1/8 x 11 1/8 in), unframed, [circa 1502-1530, but later].

Literature:
Bartsch, 6; Levenson, et al., 118; Hind, Strauss 10

⁂ The original copper plate for the present print is held in the British Museum (see reg. no.: 1888,0117.13), with a second work engraved on the reverse showing the Allegory of the Power of Love. Passavant suggested that impressions were made up until at least 1821 from the plate, at which point it was in the collection of Giuseppe Vallardi. It has been noted by Levinson et al. that the general composition of the print was derived from Filippino Lippi's (1459-1504) painting of the same subject from 1496 (See: Uffizi, Florence). [1]
