"In the Academy of St. Luke" says Lanzi "is preserved as a treasure, the picture of St. Luke, painted by Raphael, in which is his own likeness." This also is a Unique Copy, granted to the Archbishop by favor of the Roman Government. The four Cherubic Animals are allotted by the Painters to the four Evangelists. That of St. Luke, is the bull. His youthful attendant, is Raphael himself. (On canvass--length 4 feet 6 inches, breadth 3 feet 3 inches.) [P. .]
