General Flavius Belisarius (505 - 565) was a Byzantine general and leading military figure. He led imperial armies against the Sasanian empire (Persia), the Vandal kingdom of North Africa, the Ostrogothic regime of Italy, and the barbarian tribes encroaching upon Constantinople. According to legend, Justinian, jealous of his popularity, later had him blinded and forced to beg before pardoning him because of public outrage. At the time the print was made, the picture was the proud centerpiece of the Belisarius Chamber of Lord Townshend at Raynham Hall, Norfolk, where it was singled out for praise by Horace Walpole.

Pair of engravings. Each 510 x 350mm (20 x 13¾"), with very large margins.
Two female allegorical figures: Justice, seated on steps, looking at the scales in her right hand, holding the neck of an ostrich with her left; and Meekness, sitting on a stool, wearing a veil decorated with pearls, one hand at her bare breast, a lamb curled under her foot. Raphael painted the figures of Justice and Meekness in the Sala di Constantino, using oil instead of the fresco of the other decorations in the room, painted by his pupils. They were sketched by Robert Strange in Florence in 1761, engraved by him in London 1768 and published in a collected edition of his engravings. According to a letter written by Strange to the 'Scots Magazine' in 1761: 'leave was solicited, and after much difficulty granted [with the help of Cardinal Carlo Rezzonico, nephew of Pope Clement XIII], that I should erect a scaffold in the Vatican, which, for several years past, has been absolutely prohibited. I began, in that place, with two figures; the one representing 'Justice', and the other 'Meekness', by Raphael; they are in the Hall of Constantine, and were the last things he painted before his death. These figures contain all that is excellent in painting...'.
