Short Description: Yvonne Elet, Associate Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Vassar, presents a new and holistic view of Raphael’s inventiveness.
Extended Description: Yvonne Elet, Associate Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Vassar College, will deliver Oberlin College's Harold Jantz Memorial Lecture, titled "Raphael's Intermedial Inventiveness." While Raphael was praised during his lifetime as “prince of painters,” a description rendered indelible by Giorgio Vasari, this characterization long served to obscure the artist's achievements in other modes. We now recognize Raphael's role as Rome’s chief architect and his designs for many media, but his innovative and complex work across the media is little understood. This talk explores the artist’s grand-scale, programmatic designs integrating architecture, landscape, sculpture, painted and stucco decoration, gardens, waterworks, urban design, sightlines, and performance, to present a new and holistic view of Raphael’s inventiveness, and his importance in the development of Western art and architecture. | Image: Pierre-Nolasque Bergeret (French, 1782–1863), "Honors Rendered to Raphael on His Deathbed," 1806.
