Raphael or "Complete Perfection"

Antonio Paolucci

(More from this Author)

An elegant monographic volume dedicated to the opera omnia of Raphael Sanzio.

Antonio Paolucci paints a comprehensive picture of the life and work of the artist from Urbino, ranging from his first experiences in the workshop of his father Giovanni Santi, the teachings of Pietro Perugino, the Florentine period, the years in Rome in the service of the Holy See, and the importance of his workshop, to his death in 1520.

The evocative excursus on the individual works, exper - tly outlined and explained, underlines in each one the distinctive features of his painting, as well as the evolution of Raphael's style, his techniques and use of colors, and the most important iconographic themes and their meanings: feminine beauty, the Madonna and Child, and philosoph - ical and religious themes—Saints, Bible stories, and the life of Jesus up to the Transfiguration.

The volume concludes with a complete catalogue of the works and essential technical information: date, technique, place of conservation and inventory number.

It is extensively illustrated with color photographs, offering splendid images of the works and previously unpublished full-page details.
