Crowned the 'Prince of Painters' by Giorgio Vasari, Raphael (1483-1520) counts as one of the most popular artists of the Italian Renaissance. Famous for his serene and harmonious Madonnas and his work at the Vatican Palace, he was an extremely influential painter during and after his lifetime. Raphael was hired by Pope Julius II as his chief architect and his first commission was to decorate the papal apartments at the Vatican in 1509. Today these rooms attract visitors from all over the world. Raphael in Detail shows his masterpieces as never before, in beautiful details. Art historian and specialist of the Italian Renaissance Stefano Zuffi takes the reader on a surprising voyage into Raphael's life and work, travelling from one detail to another. The book is organized thematically and includes a biography and an annotated list of works.
