Raphael and his School Drawing Connections

Published on March 11, 2022

Following the 500th anniversary of the death of Raphael (1483–1520) in 2020, experience the Italian Renaissance master's exquisite drawings and trace his influence through the work of his pupils.

During his relatively short life, Raphael went from provincial obscurity as the son of a court artist in Urbino in central Italy, to establishing himself as the dominant painter, architect and all-round artistic designer at the Papal court in Rome.

The 29 works on display will highlight Raphael’s development as a draughtsman and show how his talented pupils – Perino del Vaga, Polidoro da Caravaggio, Giulio Romano and Giovanni Francesco Penni – continued to draw with a similar inventive and free-flowing spirit.

The exhibition runs from 2/2 - 5/15/22 at the British Museum Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3DG, United Kingdom.
