Raphael, one of the world’s great artists, died in 1520 in Rome aged 37 at the height of his artistic career in which he rivalled both established painters such as Michelangelo and younger contemporaries such as Sebastiano del Piombo. Acclaimed art historian Siân Walters will mark the upcoming 500th anniversary by tracing Raphael’s extraordinary rise. She will discuss Raphael’s successful entry into the  Roman artistic world and the masterpieces created there.
