Figs 3 and 4: Panels in a window-niche in the Vatican Museum, ibid...Ornamental wall-and ceiling painting of High-Renaissance is represented in its highest beauty and dignity by the works of Raffaelle and his school, especially in the Loggie of the Vatican. Although a great part of those paintings are not from his own hand, yet they were carried out by his pupils after the master's designs, and in his spirit...To a pupil of Raffaelle also, the paintings in the Palazzo Doria at Genoa are to be ascribed'.
