About this title

Synopsis:

This opulent, multi-faceted celebration of the man called "the prince of painters" is a treat for fans of Renaissance painting and students of art history alike.

Alongside Michelangelo, Raphael Santi is considered the second great genius of Italian Renaissance art. While his paintings epitomize the High Renaissance qualities of harmony and ideal beauty, their warmth and serenity shine through.

Throughout the volume Raphael’s own observations shed light on his creative process and his deep devotion to his art. Filled with biographical material, including excerpts from the artist’s letters, study of the art and life of Raphael uses brilliant color, dynamic layouts and in-depth research to yield a vivid picture of his life and work. Time lines, detailed historical background, and splendid reproductions of his depictions of the Madonna and Child and his commissions from the court of Pope Julius II lead toward a greater understanding of the forces behind his genius. Anyone fascinated with the life and times of this magnificent artist will find much to explore and savor within the pages of I, Raphael.

About the Author:

Dagmar Feghelm wrote a dissertation about Titian to earn her Ph.D. at Ludwig Maximilian's University in Munich, where she is an instructor. She lives and works as a freelance art historian in Munich.
