Upraised Right Hand with Palm Facing Outward (1518-20)
Probably a study for a portrait of Saint Peter found in the Vatican, this chalk drawing of a hand is on a short list of Raphael’s last known drawings before his death in 1520 on his 37th birthday.
McCULLAGH SAYS: “This is characteristic of his late drawing style—–very subtle, very structural.”
