Item description for Raphael (Chaucer Art) by Richard Cocke...
Raphael, like Michelangelo and Leonardo, has long been regarded as one of the supreme draughtsmen of the Renaissance; he inherited a new approach to drawings that developed in Florence in the fifteenth century and which in his hands reaches a mastery that has been equaled but never surpassed. Raphael is best known for his Madonnas and for his large figure compositions in the Vatican in Rome. His work is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition and for its visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur.

A gorgeous artbook devoted to the life and works of Raphael Feb 7, 2005
Raphael is a gorgeous artbook devoted to the life and works of immortal Renaissance painter Raphael. Both his drafts and his paintings are scrutinized, and the text recounts his biography, in particular as the events of his life led him to create his greatest masterpieces. The classical artworks make Raphael a rapturous experience to page through for the illustrations alone, but the depth of insight in the discussion makes Raphael a definitive "must-have" artbook for libraries, illustrated art history shelves and personal collections.
