Raffael exhibition

Urbino is hosting an exhibition on Raphael, who was born there in 1483. The exhibition brings together 12 of his paintings, and some of his drawings. The background to his work is illustrated by works of his father and other contempories. It ends with an exhibiton of majolica ware illustrating the use of Raphal’s paintings in this media. It was a really interesting show, much better than the Giotto exhibition in Rome. 

Didn’t manage to get to Urbino until 1.00pm. As it happens it was perfect as there was plenty of space in the car park and the exhibition was not heaving with groups of school kids who were leaving as we arrived and arriving as we left.

Among the works displayed was a small George and the Dragon.
