Raphael. 29th of September until 7th of January 2017, Albertina, Austria


Raphael stands alongside Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo as one of art history’s most important masters. As a painter and architect, working in Florence and Rome and for popes and princes, Raphael was a true universal genius of the High Renaissance who constantly sought to strike a balance between naturalist imitation and idealisation.

The Albertina is mounting the first exhibition to present works solely by Raphael in Austria. Around 130 drawing and 17 paintings serve to represent all of the artist’s important projects: from his early Umbrian period (up to 1504) to his years in Florence (1504/1505–1508) and on to his Roman period (1508/1509–1520), impressive works from all of his creative periods are included. hs art service conducted the fine art transport for this major exhibition about Raphael in the Albertina.
