Raphael and the Madonna
Featured in more Renaissance paintings than any other subject, the Virgin Mary has been depicted by the likes of Da Vinci, Giorgione, and Titian. Raphael himself painted the figure multiple times, but his Sistine Madonna is considered the most artistically and theologically significant of all.
In this book, author and art historian Stephan Koja examines the masterpiece and considers its place within the aesthetic and religious debates of the 16th-century. Raphael’s groundbreaking Madonna emerges through clouds of winged cherubs, cradling Christ and flanked by the saints Sixtus and Barbara.
Combining critical biography and art history, Raphael and the Madonna traces the evolution of the artist’s style through his countless earlier depictions of the Virgin Mary, and compares his technique to other early Renaissance masters, including Botticelli and Mantegna.
