Catalogue Note

This very good example of Lilio's mature graphic style is most probably datable to the first decade of the 17th century.  Giovanni Baglione states that Lilio came to Rome 'giovinetto' to work in the cantieri of Pope Sixtus V (1585-1590), and in fact most of his work in Rome seems to date from the late 1580s to the 1590s.  Lilio was already a member of the Accademia di San Luca by 1596.  His later years were spent in his native region: the Marches, were after 1610 he produced a number of preparatory drawings for engraved celebratory frontispieces.  We have not been able to connect the present figures to any known work by the artist.
