Raphael, the last of the three great painters of the Renaissance, was born Raffaello Sanzio in Urbino, in the province of Umbria. It is probable that he took his first lessons from his father, a provincial painter named Giovanni di Santi, before going to Florence. He was working in the studio of Perugino by 1500, an artist well known for his serene and beautifully colored works. Raphael’s work became luminous in atmosphere, rich and clear in color, harmonious in movement, sculpturally three-dimensional, and perfectly balanced in composition.
