Niccolo Boldrini, Wood Engraving, Caricature of Laocoon

Niccolo Boldrini, 16th Century Italian, "Caricature of Laocoon". An original wood engraving by Italian Renaissance artist Niccolo Boldrini, after a pen and ink drawing by Titian. The image size is 10 3/4 x 15 5/8 inches, created c. 1525, cat: Mauroner-20, original lifetime impression. This image of monkeys battling snakes is based on Titian's drawing "Parody of Laocoon", which mocked the vast influence of the ancient Roman Laocoon statue after it was unearthed in 1506.
