Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (April 6 or March 28, 1483 – April 6, 1520), better known simply as Raphael, was an italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. His work is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition and for its visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period.
The School of Athens (1509/1510)- Fresco (Vatican city)- 500 x 770 cm.
As you can see, Raphael is one of the greatest painters in history, amazing works, amazing life, but he died too young.
Luckily he left these wonders for all of us.
“Thank you Raphael, we know you´re painting the heaven for God”.
Blessings…love…and a piece of chocolate. 😉
