Marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, the greatest exhibition ever held of his works took place in Rome. With over two hundred masterpieces, including paintings and drawings this major exhibition celebrated the life and work of Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino.
With unprecedented loans from the Louvre, Uffizi, National Gallery of Art, the Prado Museum and more, the exhibition and this film provide an unprecedented opportunity to see the breadth of Raphael’s skill, creativity and ingenuity. The film covers his life in Rome, and includes unique footage of the ancient Rome that was such a powerful influence.
More than just a painter, Raphael was one of the most extraordinary artists of the Renaissance but is often misunderstood or mythologized. On the basis of this extraordinary exhibition in Rome, this film allows Raphael, for the first time, to be truly revealed.
