Art & Architecture On Screen: Raphael Revealed

In his brief career, Raphael shaped the course of Western culture like few artists before or since. Marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death, the greatest exhibition ever held of his works took place in Rome.  Exhibition on Screen and award-winning director Phil Grabsky were granted exclusive access to this once-in-a-lifetime show.  More than just a painter, Raphael was one of the most extraordinary artists of the renaissance, but is often misunderstood or mythologized.  This extraordinary exhibition allows Raphael, for the first time, to be truly revealed.
