Beginning with a dissertation on Raphael’s drawings, Oskar Fischel made it his endeavor, with an ever growing knowledge of Raphael, to arrive at a comprehensive representation, and this he has left behind this book. The illustrations gathered together by him over a period of many years are intended, in the selection here provided, to induce the reader to seek out the works of the artist. The book speaks of Raphael’s influential manner on society.

In 1914 he qualified as a professor of art history with a study on the visual arts and the stage at the University of Berlin.
