As for Raphael, his works hung on the second floor of the Museum, which the Italians frequent guests. Eight of the paintings are interspersed with three graphics. Opens a gallery of images self portrait of the master. He appears before us as his contemporaries described: peaceful, harmonious, gentle.

By the way, also thanks to flexible character that is Raphael, not Leonardo and Michelangelo, endeared himself to influential patrons. Not having a vast knowledge neither the first, nor will the second, he realized that he was inferior to them in many ways. But while these individuals were unpredictable in his actions and his thinking is inaccessible to ordinary people, the meek Rafael endeared himself to the audience of higher social strata.

But some of them — the image of the spouses Doni (Agnolo Doni and Maddalena Strazii) of the Palatine gallery Palazzo Pitti. Adjacent to them, the famous “Mute” from the national gallery of Marche in Urbino, native town of the artist. The Central place given to “the Ecstasy of St. Cecilia”, which is the strength of religious feeling is in line with the “Sistine Madonna” and is estimated at 100 million euros. However, this figure is close to the amount of insurance most of the present paintings.

— We would not be able to hold this exhibition only by his own efforts, even if they danced ritual dance, she managed, thanks to patronage of the arts, says the Director of the Pushkin Museum Marina Loshak. — Although the soil in our Museum was prepared for such project. We have stopped Refaeli: it was the “Donna Velata,” “the Lady with the unicorn,” for 10 years we have lived great “Sistine Madonna”. Meanwhile, his Madonna, I think, prevented this artist, so it felt in all varieties. Indeed, in his works, it is important not only charm, but also the drama.

Indeed, for many Raphael remained master analika Madonna known so that it is difficult to evaluate their artistic quality. Moreover, the image reproduced countless imitators. Cheap prints, hanging everywhere, cast doubt on the merits is generally understood, is too undeniable art. In fact, the apparent simplicity of the artist — the fruit of deep reflection, precise calculation of self-control. Sure, I was looking for such a thing as “Madonna Granduca”. This is a genuine classic.

— It depicts the thinking of people, — explains the Director of the Uffizi gallery, Eike Schmidt. Their thoughts are material, we see them. The shapes are fixed, and their soul, thoughts and emotions of move — in that we find the genius of the master.

Moreover, the mobility of the images is observed in his chart: “Madonna and child” images of two women. By the way, the art market, drawings of Raphael are valued more paintings many iconic artists of the period. For example, recently the Head of a young Apostle” Christie’s was sold for 48 million dollars.

In General, fever the works of Raphael are not only among buyers but also among visitors. After all, tickets for the exhibition sold out in minutes. Well and the most interesting — we will present the Pushkin Museum in 2020, when it will celebrate 500 years since the death of the master.
