Raphael Revealed

Oct 16 2021 - 1:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students

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.

With more than 200 masterpieces, including paintings and drawings - more than a hundred of which were brought together for the first time - this major exhibition celebrates the life and work of Raphael Sanzio da Urbino.

With unprecedented loans from the Louvre, Uffizi, National Gallery of Art, the Prado Museum, and more, the exhibition and this film provide an unparalleled opportunity to see the breadth of Raphael's skill, creativity and ingenuity.

Grabsky provides a fresh look at this giant of the Renaissance, and shows why he is considered one of the all-time greats.  This cinematic experience covers the artist's life in Rome with a unique look at the ancient Rome that was such a powerful influence, including rare footage of Nero's Golden House that Raphael himself visited.

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.
