In 1504, Raffaello (Raphael) decided to leave his apprenticeship with Perugino and move to Florence. He was influenced by the works of the Italian painters Fra Bartolommeo, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Masaccio. These incredible artists had achieved a whole new level of depth in their composition. As he studied their work in great detail, Raphael managed to develop an even more intricate and expressive personal style than was evident in his earlier paintings. From 1504 through 1507, Raphael created lots of "Madonnas," which was influenced by Leonardo da Vinci's works. His experimentation with the theme boomed when he painted the La Belle jardine. Raphael created his most famous painting in Florence, the Entombment, which based off of Michelangelo's Battle of Cascina.

In the collage above scratch the surface of Raffaello's work. Most of the paintings are his work that describes his religious paintings. The paintings range from Jesus on the cross as the main focal point to a more of a mythological way with Cupid. I hope you enjoy!

The painting are spectular. Jesus on the cross is very hard to look at but he gave his life for our sins and it's real. Mary & Joseph with baby Jesues is special. Both paintings remind us of the beginning & the end. Thanks for sharing with me. Mimi
