After Raphael. 1520–2020

The exhibition “After Raphael. 1520–2020” begins its run in the state rooms of the Winter Palace’s Neva Enfilade. It marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Raffaello Santi (1483–1520) and is devoted to the phenomenon of his influence on European art from the 16th century to the present day.

Raphael is the most influential artist of the Modern Era. Over the course of five centuries, exponents of Mannerism and Academicism, Caravaggisti and masters of the Baroque, Romantics and Modernists have invariably compared their own work with Raphael’s legacy. What is the cause of such fame? What did his name represent in this or that historical period, and what does it represent today? What connects the artist’s followers in different centuries? The exhibition in the Hermitage is an attempt to answer those questions and to look at the art of the past 500 years through the lens of Raphael’s influence.
