Not on view

Made from twelve separate blocks this is Titian's largest woodcut design. The Met has three sections each made from two joined sheets. This section forms the lower right section of the composition. According to Erica Tietze-Conrat, the print was listed in Benalio's petition as "la submersione di pharaone" and therefore, it most likely dates to about 1515. This edition was published by Domenico dalle Greche in 1549.
