Inspirational Italian Artists: Raphael

Raphael was also known as a high renaissance painter. He is one of my favorites because he is known to exaggerate drawing in the form of a person. His drawings are expressive which is his planning for the paintings. His rival was Michelangelo during this time of history of western art. Raphael also worked in Florence just like Michelangelo he was a productive admired painter. One of Raphael’s memorable jobs was being an architect of St. Peters after the death of Donato Bramante. He painted some of the supreme prized and reproduced holy pictures. Of the era he painted, The Sistine Madonna and Transfiguration. Because of his fabulous figures he created a harmony and had a talented eye forming balanced compositions. Something I thought was a fun fact of Raphael that I did not know was his father was a court painter and Raphael followed his father’s footsteps. His concentration was more classical interpretation of perfection, which is the reason why he is so inspiring of the atypical form of a painting.
