was this part of a fresco, or a single painting hanging on the wall?

I have it noted as a 'mural' but I am not sure.

If it is part of a larger work then it is very well composed !

It is in a sequence just before Raphael's works 'Battle of Milvain Bridge' , 'School of Athens' etc , whilst following the tortuous route to the Sistine Chapel.

That's all I'm afraid


My gosh, I searched the entire day to find this painting. I'm a painter myself, and I know an awful lot about art, but this one had me stumped. I almost gave up. I went through the entire vatican virtual tour on 4 websites(!) and STILL didn't find it there. Whoa, I now know for sure I need to go see the vatican myself.

Finally, the name of the painting is Martyrdom of St. Alexander by Ponziano Loverini, from Rome. I doubt I could have gone to bed tonight without finding it.
