On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death and marking the opening at the National Gallery of Art (NGA) of the splendid exhibition Raphael and His Circle, join us for an evening celebrating one of the greatest masters of Italian Renaissance, Raffaello.

Together with NGA Senior Curator Jonathan Bober we will learn more about Raphael’s unsurpassed style and how his art became a paragon of classicism that set the standards for aesthetic excellence in the Western tradition.

The talk will highlight the exhibition Raphael and His Circle featuring lesser known but equally important drawings and engravings, and present the five paintings by Raphael that are part of the Gallery’s collection — the largest and most important group outside of Europe.
