            Between 1595 and 1597, Carracci and members of his workshop created the illusion of a series of gold-framed paintings on Virtue overcoming Hardship, in a room in the palace of Cardinal Odoardo Farnese (1573-1626). Good impressions (two plates trimmed into the platemark not affecting image, one blank verso repaired).
