Raphael: The Creation of an Artist

TUE 16 MAR 10.30am | Zoom Online

Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe offers the first of two lectures on Raphael (1483-1520), an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance whose work is admired for its clarity of form, ease of composition, and visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur.

Raphael: The Creation of an Artist examines his formation and growth as an artist, and shows how the variety of his experience of art in Urbino, Perugia, Florence and Rome made it possible for him to escape any one art centre's limitations and to allow his innate skills to flourish.

Dr Chantal Brotherton-Ratcliffe taught full-time at the Sotheby's Institute of Art for 29 years and is now a consultant lecturer. Her areas of expertise are 16th and 17th-century painting. She lectures in London, the United States, and Europe and is a member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA).
