Comment:
A print translating a Raphael design for one of the cartoons commissioned by Pope Leo X for tapestries for the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican Palace, now at the V&A. This impression corresponds to the second state described by Bartsch as published by Andreani in 1609, but it is missing the white horizon he describes. For adiscussion of the work see Oberhuber, K., Gnann, A., Roma e lo stile classico di Raffaello (1515-1527), Milan 1999, cat. 8.
