SYMPOSIUM | After Raphael | Virtual Event

The Afterlife of Raphael's Art, from His Century to Ours.
Publish date:
After Raphael, Notre Dame Symposium

Marking the 500th anniversary of his death, this symposium will consider the afterlife of Raphael’s achievement—in the words of the title of Robert Williams’ last book, the redefinition of art in Renaissance Italy. By bridging historical scholarship and contemporary practice, the symposium will mirror the artist’s achievement itself, which combined the study of antiquity with its revivification in modern art.

Co-sponsored by the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, The Rome Global Gateway, the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, and the American Academy in Rome.
