Raphael
The Woman with the Veil

Presented by Arte ITALIA, through its relationship with New York-based Foundation for Italian Art & Culture, Raphael's masterpiece painting The Woman with the Veil will be exhibited in the E. L. Wiegand Gallery at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, NV from January 9 through March 21, 2010.

Depicting a woman wearing a veil the painting 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.

Founded in Reno, NV and operated by the E. L. Wiegand Foundation, Arte ITALIA promotes the exploration and conservation of Italian culture, including innovative exhibitions of classic Italian art and culinary programs featuring renowned Italian chefs.

This exhibition is presented and exclusively sponsored by E.L. Wiegand Foundation's Arte ITALIA, organized by the Portland Art Museum and supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. This exhibition was made possible by the Foundation for Italian Art and Culture.
