Raphael’s assistant, Tommaso Vincidor was involved in the painting of the frescoes of the Vatican Logge. For the decoration of the walls of the Sala di Costantino, a tapestry series was commissioned by Pope Leo X. Based on the cartoons executed after designs by Giovanni da Udine, their weaving in Brussels was supervised by Vincidor from 1520. The putti of the playful scenes, surrounded by animals and festoons of flowers and fruit, derive from Raphael.
