Be among the first to see RAPHAEL - Magister Raffaello at this exclusive preview event.
Raphael – Magister Raffaello explores the life and work of Renaissance Master Raphael (1483–1520) in a landmark digital exhibition and tapestry marking his 500th anniversary. It will premiere in the UK as part of Edinburgh Art Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer, in partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute and Magister Art.
A multimedia installation, visitors will explore the artistic genius of Raphael and experience recreations of his masterpieces including Madonna of the Goldfinch (1505–6, Uffizi), The Deposition of Christ (1507) and The Transfiguration (1516–20, Vatican).
Inspired by Raphael’s genre-defining tapestry designs, Dovecot weavers will create a contemporary tapestry, interpreting a section of Raphael’s famous Sistine Chapel Cartoon The Miraculous Draft of Fishes (1515-16) (The Royal Collection/V&A). The exhibition opens on 1 July and runs until 24 September 2022.
Tickets £15 (including complimentary Italian wine)
