Study of three figures of Hours (Hores) for the composition of the festival of the gods
Alphonse Alexandre Leroy, etcher and chisel engraver, was particularly keen to reproduce in facsimile the drawings from the Louvre collection and private collections, published by him in albums between 1860 and 1880.
The Chalcography of the Louvre has a large number of its plates and thus responds to its vocation to offer a wide public the privilege of one day owning a quality replica of drawings chosen among the greatest artists of all time, let us only mention: Raphael, Correggio, Veronese, Titian... For collectors and drawing students.
Raphael was born in 1483 in Urbino and apprenticed with the Perugino. At the age of 17 he was the most gifted of the younger generation, but aware of the inadequacies of his provincial formation, he began to study Leonardo and Michelangelo. In 1508 he arrived in Rome where he received a large number of commissions: he worked for Pope Julius II in the Vatican Lodges (1508-1519) and especially for a very influential family, the Chigi. For these he made in Rome the decoration projects of the Villa Farnesina (1517) and for their chapels in S. Maria della Pace (1514) and S. Maria del Popolo (1516).
Raphael is also known for his many easel paintings: religious scenes and portraits.
