School Of Athens

Raphael (Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino)

The School of Athens, a famous fresco by Italian Renaissance painter Raphael, is often celebrated for its depiction of each and every great ancient Greek philosopher. In addition to this impressive collection of figures, Raphael also opted to include himself in the lower-lefthand corner of the large-scale composition. He can be seen staring straight at the viewer as he stands next to Ptolemy. [See added view.] This fresco is located in the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City. []
