"La Grenouillere"

Pierre-Auguste Renoir - Oil On Canvas - 67 x 81 cm - 1869 - (Oskar Reinhart Collection (Switzerland))

The School of Athens is a fresco painted by Italian Renaissance artist Raffaello Sanzio Da Urbino, commonly known as Raphael. It is one of four frescoes in Stanza Della Segnatura that depict distinct branches of knowledge. The School of Athens is meant to represent philosophy. No contemporary document explains the fresco but many have suggested that nearly every ancient Greek philosopher is contained within it. Plato and Aristotle are said to be the central figures, placed in the centre. Plato holds the book Timaeus, and points towards the sky, this represents Plato’s philosophical interest in the heavens while Aristotle places his hand over the ground, showing that his interests were more about the observable world. Scholars suggest the painting itself shows this division between the two schools.in the painting, Socrates is arguing with his students, Pythagoras explains the Diatessaron, the diagram is shown on a piece of paper near him, Euclid is explaining geometry and Heraclitus writes using a block of marble for support. Raphael paints himself as Apelles amongst a group. Although the figures are Greek, the structure which they are in are Roman, suggested by the arch. This fresco is open for public viewing as part of the Vatican Museums.
