Portrait of Perugino (Raphael) - History

History

The painting is known to have been in the Florentine Galleries since as early as 1704, when it was identified as a portrait of Martin Luther and was attributed to Hans Holbein the Younger. In a 1825 comment to Giorgio Vasari's Vite, it was listed as a Portrait of Verrocchio by Lorenzo di Credi. Adolfo Venturi in 1922 attributed it to Perugino himself, while the attribution to Raphael appeared in the 1930s.

The identification with Perugino is today ascertained thanks to the evident similarities with the self-portrait in the Collegio del Cambio. Copies of the painting exist in Vienna, London, Bergamo, Rome and in the Accademia Gallery of Venice.
