Comment
The series consists of 18 plates, including the title page and a dedication. It was commissioned by the son of Giovanni Lanfranco, Giuseppe, to reproduce his father's designs for the Loggia del Benedizione of the St Peter's Cathedral in the Vatican. However, plates 16, 17, and 18 were made after a drawing, preserved in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no. 6345) that records a non-executed fresco project for one of the long walls of the Sala Regia in the Palazzo del Quirinale, Rome. No drawings have survived for the other fifteen plates.
