In the Sunday Series of works from “The Art of Prophecy” I am posting two Isaiahs. Both of these works are presented in the book. I prefer Raphael’s Isaiah to Michalangelo’s based on which one I suppose is the more likely portrayal. The book points out the similarities of Raphael’s Isaiah to Michelangelo’s Moses.
Raphael (Raffaello Sanzio of Urbino) 1483-1520
Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
