Along with Leonardo and Michelangelo, Raphael was one of the three great masters of the Italian High Renaissance. Despite a brief career that ended with his death at the age of 37, Raphael was extraordinarily productive, and left a large body of work that includes portraits, drawings, tapestry cartoons, religious paintings, and the famous Raphael Rooms in the Vatican Palace. Raphael's work is celebrated for, among other things, its visual clarity and harmony of composition, and for the serene grandeur of his idealized figures. We’ll be viewing a collection of Raphael’s work on a slideshow projection and our discussion will be completely informal, so no prior art knowledge is necessary.
