Rafaello Sanzio da Urbino, better known as Raphael, was one of the foremost painters history has ever seen, his death marked the beginning of the end of the High Renaissance. Henry Strachey’s fascinating biography unearths the man and the artist. Looking at his early years in Perugia and Florence through to his last years in Rome, Strachey analyses what made Raphael great. In a thorough study of the man’s life Strachey provides forceful arguments against any of Raphael’s detractors.
