Raphael - a god amongst painters Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe Wednesday 04 March 2020

Raphael's is one of the most famous names in art hisotry, and until the 19th century, he influenced many artists. Yet today, he is not as well known as this might suggest. We will take a fresh look at Raphael, exploring what he achieved and look at the beauty and grace of his work, examining his astonishing ability to grow and transform himself. This is an artist whose tragic early death leaves us wondering, had he lived, what would have come next?
