RAPHAEL 500 – Three lectures on the Renaissance Master

Organised by THE WARBURG INSTITUTE with the support of ICI London

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 500th 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.

Focussing on key paintings of the Roman period and the designs for the Sistine tapestries, individual speakers will consider the artist’s understanding of theory, his use of networks, and his development of Renaissance workshop technique. A final roundtable discussion will consider the fruits of the intense attention given to Raphael in the last few years to highlight what we have learned and to explore how new understandings of Raphael affect our comprehension of wider issues in the study of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Italian art.

All events will be delivered online via zoom, and are free to attend with booking in advance
