Raphael died in Rome in 1520 at only 37 years of age after a career of extraordinary production which covered every aspect of art and architecture from his early work in Urbino, Perugia and Florence to his fresco cycles for Popes Julius II and Leo X in the Vatican, to his ground-breaking tapestry cartoons, his penetrating and innovative portraits and his extensive work as an architect in charge of St. Peters and new urban developments of Rome, both as a designer of chapels and an explorer of the remains of Roman antiquity. The National Gallery’s exhibition was postponed until Spring 2022 and will also be explored during the study day.
