Vasari writes a long passage about Giulio's fame through 'il disegno' mentioning also how much he drew, and his inventions were widely circulated through copies and engravings.1 We have not been able to relate this drawing to any surviving work, but its appearance suggests that it most probably was intended for one of his stucco decorations in Palazzo Te.
