PBS on Feb 18 2020 Twelve tapestries by Renaissance master Raphael are back on display in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, nearly five centuries since they were last shown in the space together. "They were conceived for this space, and so we thought that it was the best way to celebrate the 500 years of the death of the divine Raphael in this way,” Barbara Jatta, director of the Vatican Museums, told Reuters. Designed specifically for the Sistine Chapel, all 12 tapestries last hung there in the late 1500s. Previous exhibitions only included a selection of the set.
