The Linbury Lecture at the National Gallery 2022 is the fourth in a new series of annual lectures which bring distinguished personalities from the broad fields of culture, academia and museums to explore themes relating to the National Gallery’s history and its collections.


Writing to his American readers in 1874 about his visit to the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Henry James rhapsodised about Raphael’s ‘easy, various, bountiful genius… happy beyond the common dream in his beautiful ‘‘Madonna of the Chair”’. The most copied and among the most famous of Raphael’s works, the tondo can be seen as a portal through time, offering the chance to consider how his art was viewed and valued from the sixteenth century onwards. This publication provides a case study in how the appreciation of works of art, and the forms of attention they receive, change across the centuries.

Coinciding with the Raphael exhibition, Professor Rubin gave this lecture on 24 June 2022.



Patricia Lee Rubin is Emeritus Professor of Renaissance Art at the Institute of Fine Arts in New York.
