18 Oct 2005-15 Jan 2006. The Thyssen-Bornemisza museums 17th Contexts exhibition from the permanent collection is dedicated to Raffaello Sanzio, one of the most important artists of the Italian Renaissance. Born in Urbino in 1483, Raphael came to Rome towards the end of 1508. He was immediately engaged to work on the decoration of the popes private apartments in the Vatican, where his talent and innovative style brought him success and recognition to the point where he was eventually obliged to set up a studio with his assistants and collaborators in order to fulfil the large number of commissions. This exhibition considers the complex question of authorship regarding the works attributed to the great artist in the last years of his life. Two of Raphaels most talented pupils were Giulio Romano and Giovan Francesco Penni, whose contribution to his work became more and more evident from around 1514 onwards. The exhibition confronts and compares a number of paintings and drawings associated with the last major works of the artist. Admission to Context exhibition: free Admission to permanent collection 6 concession 4 Tues Sun 10.00-19.00.
