RAPHAEL. The Impact of a Genius

02.07.21 - 03.10.21

To mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Raphael (1483–1520), the Ham-burger Kunsthalle is commemorating the life, work and influence of the outstanding Renaissance artist with an exhibition featuring numerous drawings, prints, photographs and books from its own collection. Raphael was the superstar of his day, going from strength to strength during his brief lifetime as popes and other high dignitaries entrusted him with the most prestigious commissions in the land. With his paintings and frescoes, this fascinating master set new standards for European art that would endure for centuries. No other artist achieved such a far-reaching impact. The exhibition focuses on five exquisite hand drawings by Raphael. These figure studies emphatically demonstrate his virtuoso observation of nature and his mastery of various techniques. The sheets are important prelimnary studies for paintings that would later grace the walls of prominent buildings such as the Vatican. Also on view will be five superb drawings by artists in Raphael’s immediate orbit that likewise illustrate the extremely high level attained by Italian drawing in the Renaissance. Another highlight of the show is a series of reproductions of Raphael’s major frescoes and paintings in the form of magnificent engravings and etchings, including key works of world art such as the Sistine MadonnaThe School of Athens and the Transfiguration.
