Holy Family


Engraving | 27.2 x 19.9 cm (sheet of paper) | RCIN 850750

An engraving reproducing the composition of a painting now in the Galleria Palatina, Palazzo Pitti, Florence (inv. Pal. no. 247). Lettered with production details.

The authorship of the painting has been a matter of ongoing debate. Formerly attributed to Raphael, it has been ascribed to Giulio Romano for much of the twentieth century and is now generally though that it may be the work of G.F. Penni (see Bibliographic References).
