Raffaello Sanzio was born on April 6, 1483 in the town of Urbino, Italy. He was a painter and architect during the High Renaissance period. His work is admired for its clarity of form, ease of composition, and visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. 

He only uses paint for his portraits and base on his painting below, it shows a marriage ceremony between Mary and Joseph. I like this picture a lot as he masters his ways of painting very well so you are able to see that he developes his styles in the paintings. Lastly, the Temple in the background is to behold the difficulty of the problems which he has and set himself to solve.

This is another portrait which is painted by Raffaello Sanzio and it inspires me. It is a portrait of La Donna Velata. As you can see, i like the folds of her dress have an erotic connotation. Many have seen facial resemblance between her and other women(La Fornarina). You can search La Fornarina on google and compare her and La Donna Velata. Both of them look really alike but of course this hypothetical woman does not age. 

In this picture at the bottom, he painted Galatea, based on a several mythological characters. Raffaello Sanzio was also influenced by other artists. I like how it has different patterns on different sides of the walls, different shades of brown and not like it is painted the same shade of brown looking so plain. Last but not least, the floor is not normal floor that we have at home or anywhere else but it has tribal patterns which looks outstanding.

Thanks for reading!
