For views of Raphael’s frescoes, please click the link above to an excellent site.
It is said that artists of the time, not knowing the appearance of their ancient subjects, would use
likenesses of well recognised contemporaries. We were told this likeness was Leonardo da Vinci
and there certainly are similarities to the work Portrait of a man in red chalk by Leonardo, which
is reported to be a self portrait, created (dated in various articles) between 1510 and 1515.
It is also said that Raphael included an image of himself in his works.
The whole of Vatican City is listed by UNESCO as having cultural heritage which the World
Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value.
