Allegory of the Hunt after Luca Penni
Penni was an Italian mannerist who worked at the French court. While it is believed that Penni’s design was intended to be made into a print, there is some evidence that it may have possibly been the subject of a fresco in a Burgundian château. The painting, however, is in such disrepair that it is difficult to determine the relationship between the painting and Ghisi’s print after Penni’s enigmatic iconography, which includes a partially erased cross in the background.
