The Raphael Loggias..
St. Petersburg, Russia..
|The Raphael Loggias
In the 1770's Catherine the Great
commissioned copies of a series of
famous frescoes painted by
Raphael and his students.
Raphael’s frescoes are in
the loggias of the Vatican
and have been called "Raphael's Bible"
as it depicts the stories of the Bible.
Christoph Unterberger led a team of
artists in the eleven year creation
of the gallery that formed a new
extension for the Winter Palace.
Today the Winter Palace,
The Hermitage, is one of the
great museums of the world.
