    Nearly five centuries after his death, Raphael’s fame remains undiminished. Commemorating the five-hundredth anniversary of the painter’s death in 1520, this exhibition brings together for the first time a painting of an episode from Inghirami’s life with the Gardner’s own portrait, as well as a special selection of sculpture, drawings, and archival materials to tell the fascinating story of the man with the red cap and the collector who brought him to America.

McKeller posed for most of the figures—both male and female—in Sargent’s murals in the Museum of Fine Arts. The painter transformed McKeller into white gods and goddesses, creating soaring allegories of the liberal arts that celebrated the recent expansion of the city’s premier civic museum.
