Bonus Podcast – Art Historian Helena’s Exploration of the National Gallery’s Greatest Portrait

The best possible way to escape for a few minutes, best possible way to refresh, restore, heal…

Helena’s back! What a joy. This podcast is her brilliant exploration of Raphael’s portrait of Pope Julius II. The portrait that is, in Helena’s estimation, “the perfect portrait.”

The “perfect” way to “do” this podcast is to bring up the National Gallery’s reproduction of the portrait and feast your eyes on same while Helena takes you through it, opens it up to view, makes you see and understand particulars in the painting that you won’t have previously seen, let alone understood.
