New in paperbackThis essential book on Raphael traces the evolution of his career from its origins in central Italy to the prestigious patronage of Pope Julius II in Rome. Richly illustrated. . . . Strikes a judicious balance between technical expertisehistory, attribution, scholarshipand a wider public's interest in how pictures are made, how highly organized workshops such as Raphael's were set up, what people have seen in Raphael in earlier eras, what they themselves should be seeking out, and seeing, in the works on display. Ingrid D. Rowland, New York Review of Books
