Raphael (1483-1520), Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn, circa 1505-6, oil on canvas transferred from panel, Galleria Borghese, Rome, Inv. 371

Rafael (the painter, not the Ninja Turtle) was a famous Italian artist during the High Renaissance. This month, one of his most beguiling paintings, Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn, is presented in the U.S. for the first time at our very own Cincinnati Art Museum. The exhibition explores the possible identity of said lady, as well as the significance of said unicorn.

Opens Oct 3, Cincinnati Art Museum, cincinnatiartmuseum.org
