Timeless Masterpieces of The Great Masters - Raphael

The Parnassus (1511)

The Miraculous Draught of Fishes (1520)

The Wedding of The Virgin

The Transfiguration (1520)

Raphael (Self Portrait)

Raphael Sanzio, usually known by his name alone (April 6 or March 28, 1483- April 6, 1520) was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance, celebrated for the perfection and grace of his paintings and drawings. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period. Raphael was enormously productive and despite his early death at thirty seven, a large body of his work remains, especially in the Vatican. He died on April 6, 1520.

Hi UncleChe,
Thanks for appreciating this blog. So few people appreciate real arts especially the works of the masters. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

I find it distressing that you must vandalize the first painting to show it on your site.

If the subject matter of a painting offends you so much, it might be best to pick a different example of his work.

Hi Jeff Miller,
I don't understand what you are saying. I don't see any painting here that was vandalized. I just don't know what you are talking about. Anyway, you are entitled to your own opinion. God bless.

Hi Lea,

I was referring to: The Parnassus

I think that if you are going to show a painting, you should show all of it rather than editing it.

I can understand not showing certain paintings because of their content but editing the painting just gets on my nerves.

For one thing, the painter is telling a story. The point of that painting is pretty much lost without the lower center of the painting.

Hi Jeff Miller,
I did not edit it. I copied it en toto from Wikipedia. If the painting was edited in Wikipedia, I have no knowledge of it. Thank you for pointing that out to me. You seem to be knowledgeable of the painting of Raphael. I'm sorry if you feel that the painting was vandalized. That was farthest from my mind. I presented the works of Raphael here to honor him and not to vandalize any of his work. Thanks for pointing that out to me. God bless.

So, on the Parnassus, the big gray square at the bottom? It's because there is a door there, in the actual room of the fresco. To put to rest any more chatter on vandalism.
