Experience the Splendor of the Italian Renaissance
Teylers Museum, in collaboration with the Albertina Museum in Vienna, presents the first exhibition in the Netherlands of Raphael (1483-1520). Raphael belongs with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci as one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance. His Madonnas and frescoes in the Vatican are world famous. For centuries, his refined style has been admired and imitated.
The first paintings in the Netherlands
More than 90 drawings of the master and his school are available to view in Haarlem for more than three months. Because of their vulnerability, these drawings are rarely exhibited. The presence of two paintings from the Uffizi in Florence and the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin is spectacular. They show what Raphael’s drawings led to. Never before have paintings of Raphael been exhibited in the Netherlands. Together, the artworks provide a wonderful overview of his glittering career.
Teylers Museum has a collection of drawings with many famous masterpieces of international artists from the 16th century. In 1791 the museum purchased work of Raphael and Michelangelo among others, many of which came from the collection of Queen Christina of Sweden.
The exhibition has been extensively studied. The outcome is that Teylers Museum appears to posess not nine but twelve drawings by Raphael, as three drawings were wrongly attributed to his pupils.
There are only two other drawings of the master in the Netherlands. Teylers Museum in the Netherlands is therefore the place for an exhibition on Raphael.
In a separate room, visitors are shown Raphael specific method and style in an innovative way. Which elements are typical of the artist? What do the experts say about it and how do you recognize a real Raphael? Visitors are asked to vote on the authenticity of a drawing: is this a work of Raphael or not? They can win a memorable trip to Italy
