Artist a day!
Evenly loved and rejected in different periods, no one can deny that Raphael is one of the most comprehensive geniuses of the Renaissance, with an exceptional manner in drawing and understanding of color.
While creating on these now-celebrated salons, Raphael received an order from his foremost private patron, Agostino Chigi, to enrich his family's chapel in the church of Santa Maria della Pace in central Rome.
As painter to the romantic court, his effort was met with high acclaim, and he proved himself as the most preferred artist in Rome. He painted portraits, religious subjects, and the Pope's private rooms.
