Who was Raphael?



Raffaello Sanzio was born on April 6, 1483. He was interested in being an artist because his own father was one before a long time ago. He instructed Raphael in it. At the age of 17 he was sent to Perugia. He studied art and other things until he really felt like being an artist (painter) was his best hobby. He then attended to art school for couple of years and became one of the greatest artists, but he was a uniquer artist. He studied and only really drew paintings of people and objects. Didn't really go into all of the architecture and all of the landscapings like most other painters did. He became the painter of the Italian High Renaissance. He is best known for his Madonnas. Raphael lived a short life, but he was living he was one of as kind. He was a genious he loved art he had some of the most extravegant imaginations. He didn't ever even put a lot of pressure in his life for his paintings he just new what he was doing. He sadly past away on April 6, 1520 in Rome, Italy.
