Slide Lecture | 500 Years of Raphael: Extraordinary Genius (virtual)


Explore Raphael's short but beautiful life, extraordinary genius and influence on artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Last year marked the 500th anniversary of the death of Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, known as Raphael, painter, architect, and indisputable genius of the High Renaissance. It was said that Raphael's brushwork could give flesh and life to anything from complex theology to a flirtatious baker's daughter. He rose to the rank of confidant to the Renaissance's most powerful popes, Julius II and Leo X, who entrusted him with providing the paintings, architecture, and archaeology to reconcile Catholic Rome with its pagan past. Presented by art historian Alard von Rohr-Demmin.
