The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Raphael at the National Gallery of London

His life was short, his work prolific, and his legacy immortal. A painter, draughtsman, architect, archaeologist, and poet, Raphael captured in his art the human and the divine, love and friendship, learning and power.

In his brief career, spanning just two decades, Raphael  shaped the course of Western culture like few artists before or since.

In the year that marks the 500th anniversary of his death, we present one of the first-ever exhibitions to explore Raphael’s complete career.

The exhibition looks at his celebrated paintings and drawings as well as his work in architecture, poetry, and design for sculpture, tapestry and prints.

With loans from the Louvre, Vatican Museum, Uffizi Museum, National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Prado Museum, this is an unprecedented opportunity to see the breadth of Raphael’s skill, creativity, and ingenuity.
