National Gallery London: get up close with Rafael

He may have died over 500 years ago (as of 2020), but Rafael’s work lives on stronger than ever, especially this year at London’s National Gallery, where a new exhibition is on sale and ready to host his fans.

The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Raphael celebrates the painter, draughtsman, architect, designer and archaeologist who captured in his art the human, the divine, love, friendship, learning and power.

He helped define what the quintessence of beauty and civilisation through some of his most famous works, like Transfiguration, Three Graces and his renowned tenure spent with Pope Julius II in the Vatican.

His career spanned only two decades, but in it he helped to shape the course of Western culture like few artists before or since.

The National Gallery exhibition will examine his work while lifting the veil on his time spent as an architect, archaeologist and poet, with so much more.
