  • Curator's comments

    This is the fifty--first in a series of 52 narrative scenes after Raphael's Loggia bound into an album. The album is complete except for plates 3,7,8,24 and 50. There is no title page but on the flyleaf there is an inscription (probably 17th century) 'Sacrae Historiae acta a Raphaele Urbin in Vaticanis xystis ad picturae miraculum expressa' followed by another inscription (probably 19th century) in French describing the series.
