The draw­ings of a Re­nais­sance ge­nius

The National - News - The Review - - Round Up -

De­spite dy­ing at the young age of 37, Raf­faello Sanzio da Urbino, aka, Raphael, left be­hind a sig­nif­i­cant body of work. This ex­hi­bi­tion in the UK fo­cuses on the Italian Re­nais­sance artist’s mag­nif­i­cent draw­ings. The ex­hi­bi­tion brings to­gether 120 works from the Ash­molean’s col­lec­tion, along with more stun­ning works from mu­se­ums such as the Lou­vre and the Uf­fizi. Draw­ings on dis­play in­clude his “Head of a Muse”, as well as “Heads and Hands of two Apos­tles”, which is con­sid­ered by some to be one of Raphael’s finest. Raphael: The Draw­ings runs at the Ash­molean un­til Septem­ber 3. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.ash­molean.org.
