The archetypal artist of the High Renaissance, Raphael is regarded as one of the greatest painters of all time. Particularly noted for his paintings of Madonna and Child, his art spanned religious and classical subjects and included a number of portraits and frescoes that are renowned for the excellent skill and grandeur they convey. This beautifully illustrated new book discusses Raphael’s life as well as the themes, styles and techniques of his art, along with examples of his most famous works like The School of Athens, Sistine Madonna, The Triumph of Galatea and Transfiguration.
