A stunning, highly detailed, bizarre, and erotic work by the brilliant illustrator Fortunio Matanio. This historically accurate and technically remarkable drawing depicts a climactic scene from Machiavelli’s The Prince. Text on verso reads “Gio Matteo Curing the daughter of Amedia.” The scene depicts an erotic yet twisted exorcism, which is both incredibly intricate and almost photo-realistic in composition. This most likely was created to accompany an excerpt from Machiavelli’s Renaissance masterpiece printed in Britannia & Eve Magazine.
