Opinion on Raphael Post
In this article, Grosvenor discovered a painting that could have been done by Raphael for a new BBC series. The painting was bought and sold as a Raphael piece in the early 19th century. The painting was said to be copied by another artist Innocenzo, a Renaissance artist. Grosvenor did some research of his own discovering the underdrawing in the painting could not be a copy of another known work. He argued that the style of the painting is Raphaelesque. In my opinion, if the painting was bought and displayed as Raphael painting then it is a Raphael painting.
