How Relevant Is Raphael? See 5 Contemporary Echoes of the Renaissance Paragon's Art
Deposition of Christ, 1507 by Raphael

As one of the most lauded and recognizable painters of the High Renaissance, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (better known as simply Raphael) is credited with laying much of the groundwork for the centuries of artistic inspiration and innovation that followed in his wake. Works like his School of Athens in the Vatican or Portrait of Pope Julius II have been studied by millions of art lovers the world over, and his influence, perhaps unsurprisingly, is still evident in the work of today’s artists. These 10 pieces, excerpted from Phaidon’shistorical monograph Raphaeland Artspace’s own inventory, show that the Old Master’s style and subject matter aren’t so different from his more modern followers.
