One of the later works by Raphael is a 1516 portrait of two Italian noble men, Andrea Navagero and Agostino Beazzano. It is a portrait of two people who are not talking or interacting with each other but happened to be drawn together.

People speculated that Raphael was planning to create a separate portrait for them but decided that it would look better if they were drawn together. Others say that the painting was supposed to be busts for each person.

But more than what the artwork is supposed to be – the painting is characterized by its vividness, clarity and detailed illustration against a dark green background.
