The Apex of High Renaissance, Raphael Sanzio’s The School of Athens
Raphael Sanzio was one of the top three masters of the high renaissance, along with Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Although he is not regarded as a great innovator in the same sense as his revered peers, he remains an artist at the apex of the high renaissance period because of the way he portrayed his subjects. He created harmonious spaces for his subjects through his compositions.
The School of Athens is a symbol of Philosophy, Science, and Art; It’s a scene where the greatest philosophical minds in history come together to debate and learn from one another.
