The School of Athens

The School of Athens

This is the first of many history pages that I am going to add!

Raphael was born in Urbino,Italy on April the 6th 1483.
From his birth he showed a very great interest in drawing.
As he grew up he was constantly surrounded by friends and admirers. Some of his greatest works are "The School of Athens", and "The Sistine Madonna."


Many people considered him the "Perfect Painter" because his paintings are perfect in every detail.
He died on his 37th birthday and although he died young, he left behind him the many beautiful pictures that we can see today.

Contemporaries:
Leonardo da Vinci
Michelangelo Buonarroti
