Masterpieces of Art
The ‘Renaissance poster boy’ Raphael (1483–1520) was renowned for his good looks, love affairs and friends in high places as well as his paintings. Following an accessible introduction to his life and work, this book presents reproductions of over 70 works by Raphael, arranged in four sections: the celebrated depictions of the Madonna, portraits, paintings on Christian and classical themes, and the frescos, with details from epic works such as The School of Athens.
