RAFFAELLO Sanzio
(b. 1483, Urbino, d. 1520, Roma)

View of the Stanza della Segnatura

1510-11
Fresco
Stanza della Segnatura, Palazzi Pontifici, Vatican

This view of the Stanza della Segnatura shows the Parnassus (Poetry) in the left lunette, and School of Athens (Philosophy) in the right. The popular but somewhat misleading name the School of Athens dates back only to the eighteenth century.
