"Raphael’s Tapestry Cartoons"

In 1515, Medici Pope Leo X commissioned Raphael to produce a series of 16 full-scale cartoons from which an equal number of silver and gold-threaded tapestries were to be produced in Brussels. The final location of the tapestries was the Sistine Chapel and allowed Raphael’s work to be measured side-by-side with Michelangelo’s frescoes on the ceiling. Raphael ultimately produced 10 cartoons, 7 of which survive and are located today in the Victoria and Albert Museum of London.
