Raphael Vatican artwork. One engraving circa 1800 of a pair of Raphael pilaster frescos. 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 between 1772 and 1777 for Delle Loggie di Raffaello nel Vaticano (Of the Loggia by Raphael at the Vatican).

The picture does not do justice to this exquisitely engraved and hand-coloured engraving of Vatican pilasters by Raphael. (Available as above, superbly framed)  Large folio-sized engraving is 14.5 x 19 inches or 37 x 50 cm.
