Pair of exquisitely-detailed Raphael Pilaster frescoes. Pl.2 engraved c1800

by Raphael Sanzio da Urbino

Raphael Vatican fresco from Logge del Vaticano. One engraving c.1800 of a pair of Raphael pilaster frescos. Original antique copperplate engraving by draughtsman, artist, etcher and engraver Carlo Lasinio (1759-1838) of a pair of frescos from pilasters (pillars) in the Loggia at the Vatican), representing the superb wall decoration as devised by the celebrated Renaissance artist, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (1483-1520) for the private Loggia of the Vatican in Rome. This original antique print has been beautifully hand-coloured with gouache and watercolour at some time since publication.

Raphael's frescos for the Loggia of the private residence at the Vatican, were painted by Raphael and his assistants during the last two years of his life. Logge del Vaticano (Loggi of the Vatican), published in Rome circa 1787 by Niccola de Antoni and in Paris circa 1802 by Pierre Choffard. Pairs of Pilasters were re-engraved, half the size of the grand single pilasters published in Rome c1772-1777 for Delle Loggie di Raffaello nel Vaticano (Of the Loggia by Raphael at the Vatican).
The camera does not do justice to this exquisitely engraved and hand-coloured engraving of Raphael Vatican Loggia fresco. Size of folio sheet: 14.5 x 19 inches or 37 x 50 cm.
