School of Athens - Raphael


Raphael was one of the great Italian Renaissance painters.  Among Raphael’s famous paintings is The School of Athens, a fresco on the wall of the Papal Apartments in the Vatican City, Rome.  This work was painted from 1509-1511, and it shows the towering ancient philosophers in pursuit of truth.
