A new Raphael is discoveredJuly 10, 2017
The Vatican has discovered new paintings by Raphael hidden in plain sight – right on its wall.
Recent investigations have revealed that Raphael had a key role in painting the Room of Constantine in the papal apartments of The Vatican.
Previously, it was thought that the area was painted by the artist’s workshop using sketched general outlines, as the artist was thought to have died before its completion. In fact, Raphael had a key role in painting the magnificent reception room.
