Hollstein German 109-2(2)
Hercules, who has just conquered the Hydra of Lerna, is leaning against an altar surmounted by his mace and lion skin. A woman offers him a laurel wreath.
In the background a round temple.
J.F. Greuter collaborated with Jesuit G.B. Ferrari (Rome 1633) for the Orationes XXV (Lyon 1625) on a prototype by Domenichino (Domenico Zampieri) and for the Hesperides (Rome 1646) with the title page and two plates designed by Pietro da Cortona, Reni and Lanfranco.
J.F.Greuter certainly trained with his father Matthäus, and his skill in the art of the burin is remembered by Baglione.
He is best known for his prototype prints of the most famous Baroque masters, including G.L. Bernini, Pietro da Cortona, G. Lanfranco, G.F. Romanelli, A. Camassei, S. Vouet, G. Stella.
