Portrait of Pope Julius II Painting by Raphael

Portrait of Pope Julius II was painted by Raphael in 1511-2. The subject was a popular one. According to the 1901 catalogue of the National Gallery, “This portrait was repeated several times by Raphael, or his scholars. Passavant enumerates nine repetitions…besides three of the head only.” There is a possible cartoon for the London version in the Palazzo Corsini, Florence, and a red chalk drawing at Chatsworth House. buy famous reproduction paintings online

The presentation of the subject was unusual for its time. Previous Papal portraits showed them frontally, or kneeling in profile. It was also “exceptional” at this period to show the sitter so evidently in a particular mood – here lost in thought. The intimacy of this image was unprecedented in Papal portraiture, but became the model, “what became virtually a formula”, followed by most future painters, including Sebastiano del Piombo and Diego Velazquez. The Oxford Dictionary of Art indicates that the painting “established a type for papal portraits that endured for about two centuries.” This painting can be reproduced on canvas by Daydaypaint.com.

Christ Falls on the Way to Calvary Painting by Raphael

Christ Falls on the Way to Calvary was painted by Raphael in 1514–1516. It shows the common subject of Christ Carrying the Cross to his crucifixion, at the moment when he fell and his mother suffers a spasm of agony, the Swoon of the Virgin, or “Lo Spasimo”. All the emotion of the painting is densely crammed into the foreground and the background is similar to that of a stage set with distant groups of people and crosses.  oil painting reproductions sale

The man on the left in the foreground is similar to a figure in Raphael’s painting “The Judgement of Solomon” in the Raphael Rooms in the Vatican Palace, except reversed. Simon of Cyrene lifts Christ’s cross momentarily and looks sternly at the guards. The four Mary’s are depicted on the right side of the painting and towering on either side of the composition are the guards. buy famous reproduction paintings online

The concept of, and devotion to, the “spasm” of the Virgin was fashionable, if somewhat controversial, in early 16th century Catholicism, although in this work the Virgin has only fallen to her kness, not collapsed or fainted, as is often shown.

Sistine Madonna Painting by Raphael

Sistine Madonna (La Madonna di San Sisto) was painted by Raphael in 1513-4. In the painting, the Madonna, holding the Christ Child and flanked by Saint Sixtus and Saint Barbara, stands on clouds before dozens of obscured cherubs, while two distinctive winged cherubs rest on their elbows beneath her. American travel guide Rick Steves suggests that the expression on Mary’s face stands in marked contrast to the usual in that this Mary is worried, reflecting her original placement beside a painting of the Crucifixion. buy famous reproduction paintings online

The Three Graces Painting by Raphael

The Three Graces Painting by Raphael

The Three Graces was painted by Raphael in 1500-5. It depicts three of the Graces of classical mythology. It is frequently asserted that Raphael was inspired in his painting by a ruined Roman marble statue displayed in the Piccolomini Library of the Siena Cathedral—19th century art historian held that it was a not very skillful copy of that original—but other inspiration is possible, as the subject was a popular one in Italy. Julia Cartwright in Early Work of Raphael proposes that the painting bears far more influence of the school of Ferrara than classical sculpture, making clear that the statue was not Raphael’s model.

The three women in the painting may represent stages of development of woman, with the girded figure on the left representing the maiden (Chastitas) and the woman to the right maturity (Voluptas),though other interpretations have certainly been advanced.
