The Martyrdom of Saint Cecilia
Engraving, 238 × 405 mm
Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest 5517
The engraving is related to the fresco, already destroyed, designed by Raphael and executed by his workshop in 1517–1519 in the chapel of Villa Magliana, a papal retreat outside of Rome. The scene combines the martyrdom of Saint Cecilia, boiled in a cauldron of oil, with the beheading of her husband and brother-in-law.
