Lecture: Raphael: The Making of a Master

Davide Gasparotto, Senior Curator of Paintings and Chair, Curatorial Affairs, The J. Paul Getty Museum
July 2020

Over the course of his short but unprecedented career, Raphael painted the image of the Virgin and Child many times and in different iterations, including the masterpiece today at the Norton Simon Museum. In this lecture Davide Gasparotto illustrates how Raphael was able to infuse new life into a traditional subject, exploring the artist’s creative process and his intense dialogue with contemporary painters, from Perugino to Leonardo da Vinci.

Presented in conjunction with Raphael 2020.
