Wed@2: The Dresden Tapestries, Part 1: Raphael & the Tapestries
July 27, 2022
Location: CMA & Online
In this first of a two-part series in conjunction with the exhibition Raphael—The Power of Renaissance Images: The Dresden Tapestries and their Impact
, David Stark, Chief Curator Emeritus, will discuss the six monumental tapestries in the exhibition, woven in the 17th century from large cartoons (paintings) created in the previous century by the Renaissance master Raphael. The lecture will look at the religious contents of the tapestries and will include a survey of the art and life of Raphael, whose brilliant career was cut tragically short by his death at age of 37.
In-person tickets are $5 for CMA Members, $20 Non-Members. Virtual Zoom session is free.
