Raffaello Santi was born in the city of Sanzio, in Italy, 1483. He was the child of the Urbino's court painter, Giovanni Santi, and Màgia. Talented since his childhood, he joined Perugino's workshop to study with the master and absorbed his techniques with excellent acuity. Still young, he was invited to move to Rome to work for the Vatican, being commissioned by the Popes Julius II and Leo X.
Raphael was responsible for a multiple of the greatest works of art of all time. The Raphael Rooms were his more significant achievements, painting four rooms in the Apostolic Palace. With each describing one moment of great religious importance, the rooms are, from east to west: Sala di Constantino, Stanza di Eliodoro, Stanza della Segnatura and Stanza dell' Incendio del Borgo.
The artistic community got euphoric in 2015, when the restoration of Constantine's room, part of the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican, was concluded. Two new Raphael artworks were found in the room, using a technique developed after the great master's death. Using a Greek pitch, a resin also used by Leonardo Da Vinci, he managed to paint the frescoes with oil, as he would do on a normal canvas.
Justice is the largest room that Raffaello was commissioned to paint. Before dying of Malaria in 1520, he used the walls that he had available to him to test this new technique. The two paintings, Justice and Charity, were genuinely superior to the ones around them, made by his workshop.
In the figure of Lady Justice, it is easy to notice the usual pictorial style used by the artist. On her right hand, replacing the sword that she usually holds, there is an ostrich being held by the neck. The bird was used in many different ways in antiquity, and Sanzio was inspired by Egyptian mythology in this illustration. In ancient Egypt, there was an understanding that to go to the underworld, one should have his soul weight against an ostrich tail feather, to determine its worth. The maestro hid the tail, provoking the viewer to search for the meaning.
Surrounded by angels and martial figures, the painting uses mostly earthly tones in the palette. She sits on a marble throne, wearing a yellow dress, and she has one of her breasts exposed. At the Lady's side, there is the hand of Pope Urban I, blessing the ones lucky enough to admire this masterpiece.
