Sistine Madonna, Raphael

Reaching 2.65 meters long, and at 2 meters wide, the Sistine Madonna is considered to be Rapheal’s dramatic masterpiece. There is an interesting history about this painting. It is said that, because of this painting, the rhetoric of the church and the skills of practiced illusionism were combined. Initially assigned to decorate Pope Julius sepulcher.
The figure of Pope Sixtus, apparently on the left, was taken mainly because he was the patron saint of the Julius clan, which came from the Della Rovere family. To the right of the Virgin painted St. Barbara, who is picturing examining the scene with a downward glance to the two angels with wings. The two angels stared deliberately at the heavenly process above their heads. Perhaps the most graceful feature of this painting, the putti is seen as a symbol for funeral processions. However, this should not distract viewers by underestimating the brilliance of Rapheal’s other feature artworks.
