Raphael: Prince Albert’s Passion

2020 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Raphael and to commemorate this significant event, exhibitions are being staged around the world to celebrate one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance. The Lightbox is the only gallery in the UK to be mounting an exhibition about Raphael in 2020. The exhibition relays the fascinating story of Prince Albert’s passion for Raphael and his creation of the Raphael Collection at Windsor Castle. It reveals how Raphael caught the imagination of the Prince Consort, who embarked on a pioneering research-based project into the work of the Renaissance master, making copies of his work using the newest technology available – photography. The exhibition will reveal 500 years of reproductive techniques used to emulate Raphael’s work, not only in photography, but also in a variety of mediums including engravings, original wood-block printing and lithography.
