Raphael Sanzio(1483-1520) was influential Italian master painter during the Italian Renasissance period. He is best known for his numerous portrait paintings (particularly of his Madonnas), and large figure compositions in the Vatican. Raphael’s style is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition. We’ve put together a collection that includes many of his well recognized portraits (Bindo Altoviti, Pietro Bembo, Pope Leo X, Baldassare Castiglione, and numerous Madonnas). You’ll also find a self portrait, and a detail of Christ in the “Transfiguration”, his last painting and considered a spiritual testament.
