54 ETCHINGS BY LANFRANCO AND BADALOCCHIO AFTER RAPHAEL MADE IN 1607
Rare suite of engravings after Raphael’s frescoes in the Vatican Loggia, a collaboration between Sisto Badalocchio and Giovanni Lanfranco when both were pupils of Annibale Carracci (to whom the suite is dedicated). The work is of interest both for the ways in which these distinctive artists practiced the art of engraving during the earliest periods of their careers, as well as for the Mannerist spin on Raphael’s frescoes. Although in some of the plates, Lanfranco arguably shows a slight edge in replicating the wave-like masses of background cross-hatching one typically associates with Carracci and which typically seem to fly off the page, the overall treatment shows considerable stylistic unity, in which areas of densely worked detailed areas alternate with sketchier, less worked areas. The suite had the dual function of disseminating the designs of one of Raphael’s most famous and admired compositions throughout Europe (as with Raimondi a century earlier, albeit here through Baroque eyes), but may also have been bought by pilgrims visiting the frescoes in Rome.

A PARTICULARLY RARE COMPLETE SET
This suite is very rare and even rarer in a complete or unmixed state. Antiquarians would often break the set to sell the engravings individually.
