Observations

Dalí entitled this work "Copie d'un Rubens copié d'un Léonard", since it was inspired by the copy made in 1605 by the Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), by way of the 1558 engraving "The Battle of the Standard" by Lorenzo Zacchia, of "The Battle of Anghiari", a fresco by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) in the Salone di Cinquecento in the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence.
