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's - The Prophet Isaiah, 1511-1512

Raphael (Raffaello Sanzio of Urbino) 1483-1520

Michelangelo's - Prophet Isaiah, 1509 Sistine Chapel

Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
