Vatican Frescoes

The Sea Victory at Ostia [from the Stanza dell'Incendio]

published 1722

Etching | RCIN 852843

A print reproducing the fresco of 'The Victory at Ostia' painted on the east wall of the Stanza dell'Incendio in the Vatican. Lettered with artists' names, publisher's address and text in Latin along the lower margin. Numbered at lower right: 16. From 'Picturae Raphaelis Sanctij Urbinatis ex Aula et Conclavibus Palatij Vaticani...', a series of 18 plates (plus title-page) after Raphael's frescoes in the Vatican published in 1722. The publishing date is to be found on the title-page of the series. The fresco is now generally thought to have been designed by Raphael, but his direct involvement in the execution is subject of much debate.
  • Added to the Prince Consort's Raphael Collection (c.1853-76)
