About this artwork
Beginning in first two decades of the 16th century, the prints of Marcantonio Raimondi helped popularize compositions by Raphael and his workshop. The sculptural figures and receding landscape in this print are typical of Raphael’s classically inspired work. The Cumean Sibyl, another design after Raphael (1970.597), displays similar landscape elements utilized to depict a pagan subject.
