Raphael: Cartoons and Tapestries for the Sistine Chapel

Raphael: Cartoons and Tapestries for the Sistine Chapel
LONDON  •  Victoria & Albert Museum  •  Ongoing

This is a display of four of the ten tapestries designed by Raphael for the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. These are the original tapestries from the only series designed by Raphael of which examples survive, and are comparable with Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling as masterpieces of High Renaissance art.

The tapestries are displayed alongside the full-size designs for them – the famous Raphael Cartoons, which have been on display in the V&A since 1865.
