New Raphael drawings discovered

Head of a muse, drawing by Raphael

Translated from Teylers Museum in Haarlem, the Netherlands:

Teylers Museum does not own 9 drawings by Raphael, but 12. These drawings are Portrait of a Young Man (1515-17), Flying Putto (1518) and Joshua speaks to the Israelite tribal chiefs in Shechem (1516-1518). Earlier, these drawings had been attributed to his pupils. Raphael had a workshop with many students with whom he worked closely for his major contracts, including the world famous “Stanze” in the Vatican.

The three discoveries will be exhibited during the first exhibition in the Netherlands about this star artist of the Italian Renaissance (28 September to 6 January).
