School of Athens by Raphael

The School of Athens is one of the most famous paintings of the Italian Renaissance. It was painted in 1509 and 1510 by Raphael who was born Raffaello Sanzio on April 6, 1483 in Urbino. This painting was part of his commission to decorate the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello in the Apostolic Palace of the Vatican. The Stanza della Segnatura was the first of the rooms to have frescoes completed and the School of Athens was the second painting completed.
