As part of worldwide commemorations marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death, The Lightbox tells the story of Prince Albert's creation of the Raphael Collection at Windsor Castle.

The exhibition reveals how the great Renaissance master's work captured the imagination of the Prince Consort, leading to an extensive and pioneering research project making copies of his work with the latest technology of the time, photography. Beginning in 1853, Albert, and his wife Queen Victoria assembled all available reproductions of Raphael's work in the Print Room at Windsor castle.

Several of the Raphael drawings will be shown in a specially designed space at the gallery, and the exhibition will also explore copies of his work through 500 years of reproductive techniques including engravings, original wood-block printings and lithography.
