April 2020 - 500 Years since the Death of Rafael
Raphael (born Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino)
March 28 or 6 April 1483 - 6 April 1520 was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance.
His work is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition, which is why he is considered to be one of the great masters of the Renaissance together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
Raphael was enormously productive, running an unusually large workshop and, despite his early death at 37, leaving a large body of work. Many of his masterpieces are in the Vatican Palace, where the frescoed Raphael Rooms were the central, and the largest, work of his career.
His best known works are "The School of Athens" in the Apostolic Palace, Vatican City and the "Sistine Madonna" in the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, Dresden.
