Video: Waldemar Januszczak on Raphael

'I've always wondered what the greatest room in art would look like when it was complete', said Waldemar Januszczak in July 2010 when he visited a rare hanging of Raphael's tapestries in the Sistine Chapel. The event was staged as a prelude to the historic V&A exhibition in 2010 which brought together four of the tapestries and the magnificent cartoons used to make them for the first time in 495 years. In this short film, Januszczak urges the public not to miss out on the London show.
