The National Gallery of Art Collection

Raphael and the American Collector (#123)

The work of the Renaissance master Raphael was much admired as a model of perfection in his own time and in succeeding centuries. Raphael's art is surveyed briefly as a background for understanding the quest for the artist's paintings in the early twentieth century by American collectors.
