This groundbreaking study of Raphael's loggia has four parts. The first and second concern the grotesques and the Bible illustrations, respectively, while the third examines the lives and artistic styles of the members of Raphael's workshop-then the largest operation of its kind-who worked with him on the loggia. The fourth part traces the loggia's enduring influence: the grotesque ornamental style elaborated by Raphael has been widely imitated, even as far afield as the corridors of the United States Capitol, and the frescoed scenes from the Bible served as influential models for popular prints.
