Raffaello

Ueno's National Museum of Western Art has a surefire blockbuster on its hands with this Raphael exhibition, billed as the first large-scale show of the Renaissance painter's work ever to be held outside Europe. There will be approximately 20 of his oil paintings and sketches featured, among them Ezekiel's Vision (pictured), Portrait of a Young Woman (also known as La Muda) and Madonna del Granduca, which is being shown in Japan for the first time. These are complemented by a range of works by Raphael's contemporaries, including prints and decorative pieces that were based on his paintings and designs.
