Magister Raffaello - World Tour 2022

 

 

 

Experience the life and work of Italian Renaissance artist Raphael in this digital art exhibition and contemporary tapestry marking his 500th anniversary.

 

Raphael (1483–1520) was a painter, draughtsman, and architect, whose designs for tapestry are considered some of the most important surviving masterworks of the Renaissance. During his brief career, spanning just two decades, Raphael shaped the course of European art, sealing his reputation as a Renaissance Master.

An audio guide will navigate you through large-scale projections and displays, this exhibition allows you to experience recreations of Raphael's masterpieces including Madonna of the Goldfinch (1505–6, Uffizi), The Deposition of Christ (1507) and The Transfiguration (1516–20, Vatican). You will be guided to a key moment in Raphael's career, the creation of the Papal Apartments at the Vatican, also known as the Raphael Rooms.

The audio guide is available in English, Spanish and Italian. The exhibition is family-friendly with different audio guides for Adults and Children as well as interactive iPads for Children. A fun and educational family day out.

While Raphael is revered for his skill as a painter, he was also a talented tapestry designer. Inspired by Raphael’s genre-defining tapestry designs, the Dovecot weavers have created a contemporary tapestry interpreting a section of Raphael’s famous Sistine Chapel Cartoon The Miraculous Draught of Fishes (1515-16) (The Royal Collection/V&A).

 

RAPHAEL: Magister Raffaello will premiere in the UK as part of Edinburgh Art Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
