In the last few years, a plethora of international events, books, articles and exhibitions have focused on Raphael to shed new light on his processes of production, his operation of networks, his engagement with the environment, and much more. What are the most significant things we have learned from such intense looking at the work of this artist? Have Raphael studies also enlightened our understanding of his peers and their practices? Do we appreciate Raphael’s period in a new way? Please join us and our panel of distinguished Raphael specialists to explore the new perspectives on Raphael that arise from the long year marking his death and celebrating his life.
Raphael’s work in painting, drawing, architecture and design had a profound effect on the arts, influencing not only his own time but also ours. Raphael 500 celebrates the painter's life and marks the year of his death with a programme that considers elements of his approaches to the invention and production of works of art and looks at the way the study of Raphael widens our understanding of other Italian Renaissance artists.
