Albert and Victoria’s collection shows photographers’ working methods

After Raphael (Urbino 1483-Rome 1520)

'Study of a half-length seated female figure' 10 - 10 Sep 1866

45.0 x 38.0 cm (whole object) | RCIN 2079267

Glass plate negative of a drawing, or a reproduction of it, created by Raphael (1483-1520) around 1504. The work shows a half-length seated female figure facing three-quarters to the right and gazing towards the viewer.

The drawing is currently in the collection of the British Museum, London (inv. no.1895,0915.612). However, when catalogued by Carl Ruland, the Private Secretary and Librarian to Prince Albert, for the Prince Consort's Raphael Collection, it was in the collection of J. Malcolm, Esq.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. At least one print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 852175.
