Etching - Signed - 1670-1677

Etching depictingon of the the stucco medallions in the Vatican Loggia. Raphael did the general design while the execution was entrusted to his assistants, headed by Giovanni da Udine ( 1487 - 1564)

Etcher: Pietro Santi Bartoli (1635 - 1700)
Painter, engraver and etcher, born Villa Bartola, near Perugia, Prominent in antiquarian circles. Bartoli transferred early in life to Rome, and became a pupil of Pierre Lemaire,' (c. 1612-88), and of Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665). After Poussin's death collaborated frequently with Bellori, until he died in 1696, making the drawings and plates of antiquarian objects that were accompanied by Bellroi's texts.

The Vatican loggias (Italian: Logge di Raffaello) are a corridor space in the Apostolic Palace, originally open to the elements on one side, which were decorated in fresco around 1519 by Raphael's large team of artists, with Giovanni da Udine the main hand involved. Because of the relative unimportance of the space, and a desire to copy the recently re-discovered Domus Aurea style of Ancient Roman painting, no large paintings were used, and the surfaces were mostly covered with grotesque designs on a white background, with paintings imitating sculptures in niches, and small figurative subjects in a revival of Ancient Roman style.

Good Impression on thick woven paper with margins.
Signed in text line.
