London Art Week inaugurated its first and highly acclaimed Symposium in December 2019, held at the National Gallery; this year the LAW Symposium will take place online, across three days, and will mark the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death. For this edition, LAW is working closely with Ana Debenedetti, Curator of Paintings and Lead Curator of the Raphael Cartoons project at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
For this final discussion of the London Art Week 2020 Symposium, our guests will explore the fortune of Raphael and his school in early-modern collections across Europe, focusing not only on the more widely known works on canvas but also on the afterlife of drawings and other media such as tapestry cartoons.
