Portrait of a Young Man, from the incredible painter and architect, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino better known simply as Raphael ;)







The Giustiniani family purchased it  between 1799­-1801 by Adam Jerzy Czartoryski. It was lost during the World War II, and its last location was: Czartoryski Museum, Kraków, Poland. The original was stolen by Nazi-German authorities (Hans Frank) in 1939 and it was never returned to the Polish possessor.
