Battle of Constantine, fought against Maxentius, A.D. 312, (graphics)
Raphael (copy after)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 97
According to general opinion, this is one of the finest pictures in the first class of great works. The most striking groups are an old soldier raising his dying son,--two soldiers fighting in the same part, and Maxentius in the Tiber, vainly struggling to extricate himself. [P. 19; exhibited under heading: "Catalogue of Engravings" and noted as after the "Celebrated Frescoes of Raphael, in the Halls of the Vatican."]
