RAPHAEL AND HIS CIRCLE:
DRAWINGS FROM WINDSOR CASTLE
features sixty-six drawings on loan from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
II selected from the magnificent collection of old master drawings
and watercolors in the Royal
Library at Windsor Castle. The drawings exemplify the principles
of composition, types of figure drawing, and systems of workshop
collaboration Raphael developed. These elements of his work set
the standard for much of the next four centuries and made his famous
large-scale compositions possible. Works by artists who influenced
him will also be on view, along with those by Raphael's assistants
who spread interpretations of his work throughout Italy.
