Cain and Abel superbly framed Raphael Vatican Arch. c1777

by Raphael Sanzio da Urbino

Raphael Arch, fresco from the Vatican. Beautiful original engraving c1777. Superbly framed: Garlands of fruit and flowers, and friezes with gods, graces, and mythical beasts decorate a magnificent fresco, devised by Rafaello Sanzi da Urbino (1483-1520) and painted during 1518 and 1519 - as commissioned for the Vatican.  

This is an original copperplate engraving by the eminent Italian engraver Joannes Ottaviani (1735-1808), after a drawing by draughtsman and artist Gaetano Savorelli (fl.1750-1775) and architect Petrus Camporesi, for Le Logge di Rafaele nel Vaticano (The Loggia by Raphael at the Vatican). From a wonderful series of engravings showing work by Raphael, it was published in Rome between 1772 and 1777 by order of Pope Clement XIII - with later stunning, meticulous hand-colour by gouache and watercolour.
