Do you have a favourite Raphael painting? This is mine: St Catherine of Alexandria, painted in 1507 and on display in the National Gallery, London.

I earn money for stockings and fans by working for a text message answering service called AQA. Someone just asked me how Raphael’s work developed as his career progressed and I really wished that I could simply send them these two works as an answer.


Crucifixion, 1502-03.


Transfiguration, 1520.
