Raphael VS Michelangelo
In this course you will:
Learn about the epic rivalry between Raphael and Michelangelo.
Until the CoVid crisis 30,000 people a day flooded the Vatican Museums, fixed on two destinations - the Sistine chapel and the Raphael Rooms.
Few wondered how did it happen that the two greatest artists of the age ended up working a stone's throw away from each other, at the same time?
In the Clash of the Titans, Liz Lev will teach you how this epic duel came about, what each artist brought to the table, and how Raphael gained his superstar status from going blow for blow, or brushstroke for brushstroke with Michelangelo
