The National Gallery has managed to obtain a number of impressive loans from some of the world's largest museums for the blockbuster, which will be launched in October 2020.

In addition to the 10 works from the National Gallery's Raphaels collection, curators have borrowed works from the Louvre, Musei Vaticani, Uffizi Gallery, National Gallery of Art (Washington DC) and the Prado National Museum.

Works that cannot be displayed physically, such as the monumental frescoes in the Vatican Palace, known as the Stanze of Raphael, are displayed in other & # 39; innovative & # 39; presented in different ways.

& # 39; His painting is so well known and iconic for very good reasons and so many people associate it with it, but he applied the principles of his painting to everything he did & # 39 ;, said Matthias Wivel, curator of 16th-century Italian paintings in the gallery, to London Evening Standard.

Works by Raphael will be launched next year at the National Gallery on the occasion of its 500th anniversary.

& # 39; There will be works that have never been seen before in the UK or that have never been seen outside of where they now live, it will be the widest scope we've seen and it's surprising that there has never been a show has followed this approach. & # 39;

Wivel said that Raphael & # 39; shows us the things we should strive for, he represents our ideals better than any other visual artist & # 39 ;.

Although he worked only two decades before his death at 37 in 1520, Raphael is still recognized today as the ultimate Renaissance painter.
