The composition of this engraving connects with the personification of Temperance, painted in the fresco of the Three Cardinal Virtues in the lunette of the so-called Jurisprudence Wall in the Stanza della Segnatura, Vatican. The engraving may be based upon a lost design by Raphael for the fresco. Signed with engraver's monogram: AV, and dated: 1517, at lower left.
