Raphael: 500 Years of a Master

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT

 

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death and marking the opening at the National Gallery of Art (NGA) of the splendid exhibition Raphael and His Circle, join us for an evening celebrating one of the greatest masters of Italian Renaissance, Raffaello.

Together with NGA Senior Curator Jonathan Bober we will learn more about Raphael’s unsurpassed style and how his art became a paragon of classicism that set the standards for aesthetic excellence in the Western tradition.

The talk will highlight the exhibition Raphael and His Circle featuring lesser known but equally important drawings and engravings, and present the five paintings by Raphael that are part of the Gallery’s collection — the largest and most important group outside of Europe.

JONATHAN BOBER

Jonathan Bober is the Andrew W. Mellon Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings at the National Gallery of Art, where he had previously served as Curator of Old Master Prints (2011-16). From 1987 to 2011 he was Curator of Prints and Drawings at the art museum of the University of Texas at Austin (now the Blanton Museum of Art), adding responsibility for European paintings in 1998. During that time, he acquired some 11,000 works (including the Suida-Manning Collection and Leo Steinberg’s print collection), played a leading role in the creation of a new building, and taught as Senior Lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History. From 1997 to 2009 he also taught an annual seminar on the history and connoisseurship of old master prints for the graduate school of the University of Milan. Bober’s principal scholarly interests concern the art of North Italy in the sixteenth and seventeenth century, in particular the schools of Lombardy and Genoa. His publications include catalogues of the Italian drawings in the Fogg Art Museum and in the Blanton, exhibition catalogues of the Suida-Manning Collection and Luca Cambiaso, and articles on the so-called Sacro Monte at Varallo, Cremonese art of the sixteenth-century, Milanese painting of the early seventeenth century, and printmaking in Venice.
