Raphael and the Reinvention of Drawing

18 October, 2021 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Martin Clayton LVO FSA

Head of Prints and Drawings for Royal Collection Trust at Windsor Castle

The Head of Prints and Drawings for the Royal Collections Trust at Windsor Castle, Martin Clayton LVO FSA, will give his talk to the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society’s first lecture of 2021/22 Season.  During Raphael’s short career of 20 years, he transformed the way artists designed their paintings through drawing.  His influence continues to this day.

Most of the drawings, prints and watercolours are kept at the print room at Windsor Castle in the original lay out created by Prince Albert.   The collection was created by three Monarchs over 500 years – Charles II, George III and Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.   In fact, it was Prince Albert who started the Raphael collection.
