Raphael is considered to be one of the greatest artists in history. He painted many well-known works, including the Sistine Chapel and the School of Athens. His paintings are well-known for their realism, the natural quality of their figures, and their detail.

Raphael was a painter and architect during the High Renaissance and arguably made the most art. He is credited with painting the most famous works of the era, including The School of Athens, and having designed many churches. He also painted two pictures for his personal patron, Julius II, one for the Vatican Palace, now called The School of Athens and the other for Villa Farnesina in Rome – “The Mass at Bolsena.” It has been said that these two paintings contain “…the entire philosophy of Renaissance art”
