- Saint Catherine of Alexandria (Raphael)
title=Saint Catherine of Alexandria
type=oil on wood
"Saint Catherine of Alexandria" is a
paintingby the Italian Renaissanceartist Raphael. In the painting, Catherine of Alexandriais looking upward in ecstasy and leaning on a wheel - an allusion to the breaking wheel(or Catherine wheel) of her martyrdom.
It was painted circa 1507, shortly after Raphael's arrival in Florence and shows the young artist in a transitional phase. The depiction of religious passion in the painting is still reminiscent of
Pietro Perugino. But the graceful contrappostoof Catherine's pose is typical of the influence of Leonardo da Vincion Raphael, and is believed to be an echo of Leonardo's lost painting " Leda and the Swan".
