The skilled French etcher Bracquemond based this print on a Bonington watercolor of 1826 (Musée des Beaux-Arts, Dijon). Figures in Renaissance costume move across a terrace with the poses of the man and woman at left implying a conversation. Bonington had visited and sketched Titian's frescoes in the Scuola del Santo in Padua then adapted them for this new context.
