Raphael: The Making of a Master
Over the course of his short but unprecedented career, Raphael painted the image of the Virgin and Child many times and in different iterations. In this lecture Davide Gasparotto illustrates how Raphael was able to infuse new life into a traditional subject, exploring the artist’s creative process and his intense dialogue with contemporary painters, from Perugino to Leonardo da Vinci.
