Raphael’s fresco of the prophet Isaiah in the church of Sant’Agostino in Rome was painted shortly after Michelangelo unveiled the Sistine Ceiling and was among Raphael’s first responses to the monumental, dynamic forms of Michelangelo’s work. That sort of artistic rivalry ultimately underlies the development of Mannerism’s self-conscious aesthetic, so it is little surprise that the Isaiah would have interested Goltzius when he travelled to Rome. Rather than basing the engraving on his own drawing of the fresco, however, Goltzius took back home to Haarlem a drawing made by Gaspare Celio, a Roman artist with whom Goltzius was associated in Italy.
