Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino | A Life in Pieces
Take a journey through time to learn about the life of a true Italian Renaissance artistic genius, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, also known as Raphael. From turning to other Old Masters such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci for art inspiration to becoming the European academies of art’s basis for training, Raphael left a vast impression on the art world and beyond.
From June 1 through Sept. 3, 2017, 120 works of art by Raphael will be on display for “Raphael: The Drawings” exhibit at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England. “Aged only 37 when he died, Raphael’s fame in drawing had a transformative effect on European art over centuries. This exciting exhibition focuses on his extraordinary creativity, and shows how exploration and experimentation shaped his breathtakingly accomplished drawings.”
