Vatican Frescoes


The Meeting between Pope Leo the Great and Attila


Albumen print | 38.1 x 56.9 cm (sheet of paper) | RCIN 852727

A photograph of a drawing now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (inv. no.WA1846.277). The drawing connects with Raphael's fresco of 'The Meeting between Leo the Great and Attila', but it also differs radically from it. It has been suggested that the drawing may be either a copy from an earlier idea by Raphael for the fresco or a pastiche derived from the latter. A drawing identical in composition is in the British Museum, London (inv. no.1946,0713.594). For further discussion, see Bibliographic References.
