The artist

Raffaello Sanzio, dit Raphaël (1483-1520)

Raffaello Santi or Sanzio, known as Raphael, a painter of the High Renaissance, is the son of the official painter of the court of the Duke of Urbino, Giovanni Santi. His style is characterized by an almost equal use of drawing and colour because, unlike many painters, he does not let one dominate the other; he is as precise in the line as in the distribution of colours as in the vanishing point.
