Biography

Raffaello Santi (Urbino 1483-1520 Rome), presumably trained by his father (died 1494) and later in contact with Perugino, was working on his own by 1500 at the latest. Beginning in 1504 he worked in Florence, and after moving to Rome in 1508/09 he created extraordinarily influential wall frescoes (Stanze) and designs for tapestries and prints. From 1514 he also worked as an architect on the building of St Peter's. Raphael's narrative pictorial style continued to be the ideal into the nineteenth century.
