Title: Double Portrait
Description:
Raphael Sanzio (Italian: Raffaello) (1483 - 1520)
Self-Portrait with a Friend (Double Portrait)
Oil on canvas, 1518-1519
99 cm × 83 cm (39 in × 33 in)
Louvre, Paris, France

The Self-Portrait with a friend (also known as Double Portrait) is a painting by Italian High Renaissance painter Raphael.

In this double portrait the artist himself stands behind an unknown man (a friend or a pupil, perhaps Polidoro da Caravaggio or Giovanni Battista Branconio, for whom Raphael had built Palazzo Branconio dell'Aquila, a palace next to St. Peter's Basilica, in 1518), on whose shoulder his hand rests familiarly. Raphael looks out of the picture with a serious expression. The friend's gesture is not meant for the onlooker, but seems more directed at Raphael, as if he were showing him something—himself, perhaps, in a mirror.
