Raphael is best known for his Madonnas and for his large figure compositions in the Vatican in Rome. In autumn 1508, shortly after summoning Michelangelo to Rome, Pope Julius II also sent for Raphael to decorate the new buildings in the Vatican creation of the School of Athens

Inspired by Greek philosophers in the fields of the Humanities- Science, Math, Justice, Philosophy, Poetry. The School of Athens Disputation of the Holy Sacrament Other Known Figures Sandro Botticelli (c. 1445 May 17,

1510) Worked in Florence, Pisa, and Rome under the patronage of Lorenzo de' Medici, The Vespucci family, and the Roman Catholic Church Even though he is known today for his hedonistic art based on Greek Mythology, he mostly painted religious subjects and also some portraits. In his later life, Botticelli became a follower of the deeply moralistic

Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola, it was believed that he had destroyed his own paintings on secular subjects in the notorious "Bonfire of the Vanities" Sistine Chapel Paintings (Youth of Moses, Cistine Chapel) In 1481, Pope Sixtus IV summoned Botticelli and other prominent Florentine and Umbrian artists to fresco the walls of the newly completed Sistine Chapel.

This large project was to be the main decoration of the chapel; most of the frescos remain, but are now greatly overshadowed and disrupted by Michelangelo's work of the next century, to make room for which some of them were destroyed. The Florentine contribution is thought to be part of a peace deal between Lorenzo Medici and the papacy. After Sixtus was implicated in the Pazzi conspiracy hostilities had escalated into excommunication for Lorenzo and other Florentine officials
