This work was realized by Alberto Martini (Oderzo, 1876 - Milan, 1954).

Incredible Italian draftsman, engraver, painter and illustrator, he was a forerunner of the Surrealist movement. In 1895, Martini started his graphic activity as illustrator of literary works, a supporting activity for his artistic production. The youthful satirical inspiration was replaced by the most macabre and morbid vein, present in the chine. He was a friend of eccentric persons, such as Luisa Amman Casati, a well-known animator of artistic life who became his precious patron of several portraits and who welcomed him to her various residences: the Venetian palace, the castle of Soncino and, between 1928 and 1930, the French residence of Vesinet. Thanks to the Marchesa Casati, he met F. T. Marinetti, for whom in 1906 he designed the cover of the nos. 9-12 (1906-07) of the magazine Poesia.
