Curator Catherine Whistler previews Raphael: The Drawings which will be on view at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, from June 1 - September. 3, 2017.

Whistler notes: "Looking closely at Raphael drawings is always a moving experience; considering the drawings in terms of their cognitive and affective aspects, rather than as stepping-stones towards the final painting, has been highly rewarding."
