Raphael’s originality shone most brightly in his portraiture. Whether the sitter was a pope or a young bride, his delicate and solicitous sensibility allowed the uncertainty of personality to be pictured as if for the first time. His portraits are never heroic, and instead reveal the problem of the individual threaded into social fabric.
