Raphael in Reproductions – Global Perspectives

The conference «Raphael in Reproductions» is intended to explore the reception of Raphaels œuvre in a global context. It tries to shed new light on the impact that «modern» reproductions had on the role Raphael played not only in national art histories but also in the emerging popular culture of the late 19th and 20th centuries. The main goal of the symposium is to confront case studies from different countries and discuss these approaches and assessments in a comparative way. The contributions from European and American scholars aim to present fresh perspectives on Raphael and his reception in a global context.
