Public domain ← → The School of Athens Raphael Date: 1510-1511 Style: High Renaissance Genre: history painting Media: fresco Location: Vatican Museums and Galleries, Vatican City, Italy References: www.mlahanas.de Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 750x500px, View all sizes The School of Athens fresco, which is one of Raphael’s most famous works, was completed to decorate the Stanza della Segnatura commission by the Pope. The Stanza was the first set of rooms to be decorated, and this painting was the second in the set of paintings that adorn the walls. Although it was created for a grand room in the Vatican, nearly every one of the figures in the painting can be identified as a Greek philosopher, rather than a religious character. Raphael included the likeness of Michelangelo himself in the painting, as the philosopher Heraclitus.
