Raphael: The Woman with the Veil
Through March 21

Raphael’s masterpiece painting "The Woman with the Veil," depicting a woman wearing a veil, embodies some of the high Renaissance master’s distinctive qualities: his control over pigment and color, and a serenity that contrasts with the style of his mentors and fellow icons of the era.
