Along with Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, Raphael ranks among the most important masters of art history. Featuring about 160 drawings and paintings, this volume, which accompanies an exhibition at The Albertina, assembles the artist's most significant and finest drawings and paintings.
The book provides an overview of the various periods of his career: from the early Umbrian period (until 1504) and the years in Florence (1504 - 1508) to the Roman period (1508 - 1520). Based on this wealth of material, the volume examines Raphael's design methods as well as his process of preparing panel or canvas paintings and frescoes.
