Vatican Frescoes


God Appearing to Noah [from the Stanza di Eliodoro]

dated 1776

Etching | 30.8 x 24.8 cm (sheet of paper) | RCIN 852746

A facsimile of a drawing when in the Praun Collection in Nuremberg. Trimmed to image (date on plate cut off: 1776). Published in Johann Gottlieb Prestel, 'Dessins des meilleurs Peintres d'Italie, d'Allemagne, et des Pays-Bas, du Cabinet de Monsieur Paul de Praun à Nuremberg', 1780, plate 11. The drawing, now in the Szépmüvészeti Múzeum, Budapest, has been described as copy from an engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi (see RCIN 852744) which, in turn, was presumably based upon a lost Raphael model by Raphael for 'God Appearing to Noah', one of the four scenes painted in the vault of the Stanza di Eliodoro in the Vatican.
