Raphael at the Met: The Colonna Altarpiece

June 20 through September 3, 2006 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

By

Raphael at the Met: The Colonna Altarpiece, exclusively at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, reunites the seven panels of the Italian High Renaissance artist's masterwork for the first time since their dispersal in the Seventeenth Century. Exceptional paintings and drawings by Raphael (Raffaelo Sanzio or Santi, 1483-1520) are amply supplemented by those of his noteworthy contemporaries. Assembled together, they describe the poignant moment in the young artist's career when he ventured from his native Urbino to cosmopolitan Florence during a high point in Italy's cultural history.
