Knowledge of Giulio Romano’s early career stems from Giorgio Vasari, who wrote that Giulio worked as an assistant in Raphael’s workshop, and became a well-loved pupil. By 1516, he was working in the Stanza dell’Incendio in the papal apartments (Vatican Palace, 1509–1517), executing Raphael’s designs for the fresco narratives. Giulio also played a prominent role in painting the adjoining Loggia of Leo X de’ Medici (1518–1519), alongside Giovanni da Udine and other members of Raphael’s workshop. Raphael received commissions to decorate the Villa Farnesina (Rome, 1513) for Agostino Chigi, and design and decorate the Villa Madama for the future Pope Clement VII de’ Medici (Rome, commissioned 1518), and Giulio participated in both projects. When Raphael died in 1520, Giulio inherited Raphael’s workshop, along with Giovan Francesco Penni, and the two completed a number of his unfinished works, most notably the frescoes in the Sala di Costantino (Vatican Palace, 1519–1524), for which Raphael had left drawings that Giulio likely modified. Giulio adapted Raphael’s use of classical forms in his work, borrowing images from ancient sculpture and reliefs, yet he also incorporated greater ornament and a subtle wit that distinguished him from his master....
