[The Last Supper]
Ant. Sal. exc.
Engraving, sheet 295 x 435mm (11½ x 17"). Trimmed and glued to backing sheet. Staining and damage.
The Last Supper, engraved after a drawing by Raphael (now in the Royal Collection) by the artist's frequent collaborator Marcantonio Raimondi. Since the drawing does not relate to any other known work by Raphael it may have been made specifically as a preparatory drawing for this print. Like many other artists since, Raphael understood and exploited the potential of prints after his work to spread his reputation throughout Europe. Later publication by Sala.
