Raphael and the antique

by Claudia La Malfa | 03 February 2020
Hardback
The Renaissance artist Raphael is known for his extraordinary frescoes, his sublime Madonnas, devotional altarpieces, architectural designs, and his inventive designs for prints and tapestries. It was his use of ancient Roman art-the sculptures, the marble reliefs, the wall-paintings, and the stuccoes-and architecture-the temples, the palaces, and the theaters-as well as the churches and mosaics of early-Christian Rome, that formed his much-admired classical style. In Raphael and the Antique , Claudia La Malfa gives a full account of Raphael's prodigious career, from central Italy when he was seventeen years old, to Perugia, Siena, and Florence, where he first met with Leonardo and Michelangelo, to Rome where he became one of the most feted artists of the Renaissance. This book brings to light Raphael's reinvention of classical models, his draftsmanship, and his concept of art-ideas he pursued and was still striving to perfect at the time of his death in 1520 at the young age of thirty-seven.
