The healing of the lame man in the Temple; St. Peter and St. John the Evangelist addressing the man among ornate columns, a crowd gathering to watch. Fourth plate from a series of eight reproducing the cartoons executed by Raphael (1483 - 1520) for a series of tapestries for the Sistine Chapel. They were commissioned by Pope Leo X in 1515 - 1518. Bought by Charles I, the cartoons were placed in Hampton Court Palace in 1699 and are now at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Nicolas Dorigny (1658 - 1746) went to England and engraved the cartoons between 1711-1719, a work for which he was knighted in 1720.
