  • The National Museum Of Western Art, Tokyo

For this meetup, we are going to see an exhibition of Raffaello, which will start at the National Museum of Western Art on March 2nd.

I don't think there is any need to explain who Raffaello is, but just in case, Raffaello Santi was a Renaissance artist, who is regarded as one of the three major masters of High Renaissance, along with Michelangelo Buonarroti and Leonard Da Vinci. In our time, the latter artists tend to stand out more, but Raffaello was considered to be the greatest artist ever lived in the West up until 19th century. His influence as a painter was enormous, and his works were ideals of Western Art.

Considering the importance of his art, it is hard to believe this, but this exhibition supposes to be the first major retrospective of his outside of Europe. This is an exhibition we can not miss. Let's enjoy beautiful and sublime works by the artist who constituted the core of Western Art.

Location: The National Museum Of Western Art, Tokyo (Access Info)
Exhibition to see:
Meeting Time: 02:30PM (14:30)
Meeting Spot: the Park Exit of JR Ueno Station
Museum Admission Fee: ¥1,500

The official site of the exhibition

Chat session after the show
As usual, let's have a chat session at the end of the event. When we meet up before the exhibition, let's decide where we go after the show.

    I'm a bit of a Renaissance art expert - a bit! - and I'd like to organize a second Raffaello meetup for those on the waiting list. We'll meet at the Park Exit of JR Ueno Station on Sat, Mar 2, at 1:30 - an hour before Tatsuya-san's group. After the exhibition, we can go to that new cafe near the museum (I forget the name...), or the museum cafe. Hope to see you!
