This print belongs to a core group of seven engravings that traditionally have been attributed to the great Renaissance artist Andrea Mantegna. Rich effects of tone and modeling are achieved through parallel diagonal hatching, so finely rendered in this print that the lines appear to dissolve. Strong contors, which are as varied and malleable as a pen line, powerfully carve out the figures. The extraordinary dexterity with which the engraving tool is handled separates this group of seven from other prints produced in the same Mantegnesque" vein, such as the anonymous Four Dancing Muses nearby. The execution of this print, which depicts the Roman soldier, Longinus, who pierced Christ's side, is probably connected to the founding of the Church of Sant'Andrea in Mantua (1472), which housed a relic of Christ's blood.
