Marcantonio Raimondi is probably one of the few blind spots in our knowledge of high Renaissance art.

Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci: all familiar names in this extraordinary era, which peaked during the 15th century.

But two key figures in Manchester's art scene - the University of Manchester's art history and visual studies professor Dr Edward Wouk, and the Whitworth's head of collections David Morris - are determined to see Marcantonio Raimondi's name regarded among them.
