Rahael's Cartoons and Tapestries for the Sistine Chapel exhibition is a collaboration between the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Vatican Museums.

This is a display of four of the ten tapestries designed by Raphael for the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. These are the original tapestries from the only series designed by Raphael of which examples survive, and are comparable with Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling as masterpieces of High Renaissance art.

The tapestries are displayed alongside the
full-size designs for them – the famous Raphael cartoons. This is the first time that the designs and tapestries have been displayed together – something Raphael himself never witnessed. The tapestries have not been shown before in the UK.

The Cartoons and Tapestries exhibition is supported by Michael and Dorothy Hintze and the Hintze Family Charitable Foundation, and also supported by the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museum.
