Giulio Romano1Giulio Romano2

       Giulio Romano (1499 – 1 November 1546) was an Italian painter and architect. A pupil of Raphael, his stylistic deviations from High Renaissance classicism helped define the 16th century style known as Mannerism. Giulio’s drawings have long been treasured by collectors; contemporary prints of them engraved by Marcantonio Raimondi were a significant contribution to the spread of 16th century Italian style throughout Europe.

  1. The Battle of the Milvian Bridge (1520-1524)

    The Battle of the Milvian Bridge, or The Battle at Pons Milvius, is a fresco in one of the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. The Battle of Milvian Bridge, located in the Sala di Costantino (“Hall of Constantine”), is by Giulio Romano and other assistants of the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael, who died in 1520. It was most likely painted to Raphael’s design between 1520 and 1524. After the master’s death, Giulio Romano worked together with other members of Raphael’s workshop to finish the commission to decorate with frescoes the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. The Battle of the Milvian Bridge shows the battle that took place on October 28, 312 between the Roman Emperors Constantine I and Maxentius. Constantine won the battle and attributed his victory to the God of Christianity.
