Raffaello Santi was born in 1483 and lived his early years in the city of Sanzio in the Urbino region, Italy. Later named just as Raphael, the son of Giovanni Santi has shown great talent and potential since his childhood, learning the basic techniques with his father and later sharpening his skills while he was under Perugino’s tutelage.
Pietro’s workshops were based both in Perugia and Florence, which made the transition to the second phase of his career smoother. Living in the capital of the Tuscany region, Raphael learned fast and absorbed the local culture and Florentine art, without losing his personal characteristics. The artist had the opportunity to stay closer to Leonardo Da Vinci, observing his paintings and frescoes, learning much from his influence. Another artist that is referenced in Raffaelo’s work is Michelangelo, forming the famous trinity of great masters of the Renaissance.
The artist then moved to Rome, commissioned first by Pope Julius II, and after his death, by Pope Leo X. He was responsible for multiple masterpieces in those years, with a special commendation to the Stanza Della Segnatura, the Raphael Cartoons, and the Loggia on the Vatican.
Housed at the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, this magnificent oil painting displays some of the most sacred characters from the Holy Family. Saint Joseph, standing and quiet and thoughtful, exchange looks with Saint Elizabeth. She holds Saint John the Baptist with care while they have a conversation.
Sitting at the right side of the canvas is the Virgin Mary, who is helping a rotund and youthful Jesus to stand. The virgin mother is wearing blue embroidery silk, set against a red gown. With all the characters together, they form a triangular shape. Her red gown relates to Christ’s death, and the blue cloth symbolizes the Holy Church.
This masterpiece is part of a set of paintings that portrays the meeting between Jesus Christ and his Apostle, John the Baptist. It is assumed that Christ was seen by Saint John as a savior even while they were infants. This delicate work of art was commissioned by Pope Leo X and sent as a gift to King Francis I, from France. The addition of the saints and the way they were drawn is a reference to Queen Claude’s pregnancy. The painting is now housed at the Louvre museum.

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.
Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.
If you are planning to frame your painting yourself,
use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service,
meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
