Raphael is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

In the year that marks the 500th anniversary of his death, the National Gallery presents one of the first-ever exhibitions to explore Raphael’s complete career.

An unprecedented opportunity to discover the huge range of Raphael's talents and skills beyond those of which he is famous for, this exhibition gives visitors the chance to view his work in architecture, poetry, and design for sculpture, tapestry and prints, as well as the Renaissance master's celebrated drawings and paintings.

Although his career was short, spanning only two decades, it was prolific. As a painter, draughtsman, architect, archaeologist, and poet, Raphael captured in his art the human and the divine, and influenced Western culture in the years that followed his death in April 1520.
