In 2020 Rome will mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Raphael – extraordinary draftsman, painter and architect – whose ideals of beauty and design have had an enduring influence on our own time. This course offers a direct access to the history that shaped Europe and unparalleled study of the artist through what inspired him, ranging from Classical Antiquity to the Renaissance: the age of Donatello, Piero della Francesca, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Weekly class lectures and on-site visits examine his work at first hand, and an excursion to Florence enhances our knowledge and appreciation of this creative genius.
