uffizi room 71 della pittura a roma nel primo 500

This space is for works by artists who had the possibility of working in Rome during the early years of the 16th century. Among them were Giulio Romano and Perin del Vaga, both students and collaborators of Raphael, and Daniele da Volterra and Francesco Salviati.

The first work we encounter is Saint John the Baptist, attributed to Raphael and his workshop, in which the saint is portrayed as a youth in traditional dress, in only a skin meant to indicate Jesus, symbolised by the cross on the left. Clearly evident is the reference to Michelangelo and his figures in the Sistine Chapel.
