The Museum of Fine Arts prides itself on an interesting collection of works by Raphael and his followers. Apart from paintings perfectly familiar to art enthusiasts, such as Madonna Esterházy, the museum holds a significant collection of drawings and etchings. The present exhibition shows 65 works, inducing all graphics made with the master’s involvement. Special attention should be directed towards rarely presented drawings, which were deeply analysed while preparing the exhibition. The effects of the research were published in the exhibition’'s catalogue.
