Raffaello Santi was born around 1483 in Urbino. He received his first education with his father, an average painter of his hometown. He was student in Perugia, he went to Florence in 1504 than finally to Rome in 1508. Since 1511 he worked as Superintendent of the St. Peter's Church and curator of ancient monuments. After his death (1520) in the Pantheon, his burial occupied the great appreciation of his contemporaries.

Raffaelo was looking to create a unity between image and architecture. A few figures, illusion of depth space and new contrasts became the binding template for generations of painters. The "Sistine Madonna" is the monumental altar painting around 1514. In addition to the Madonna and religious images, there were also portraits, which were by their representative character of appearance to the official portrait type.

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
