Raphael

Raphael Sanzio (1483-1520), the great Italian painter. Trained first by his father, later by the great Perugino. His work was done mainly in
Florence and Rome.

6. This picture is the portrait of Raphael when scarcely more than a boy.

17. Gothland’s sage: Sweden’s wise man, Emanuel Swedenborg.

36. Raphael painted many madonnas, but the word "drooped" limits this description. Several might be included under this: "The Small Holy
Family," "The Virgin with the Rose," or, most probable of all to me, "The
Madonna of the Chair."

37. the Desert John: John the Baptist.

40. "The Transfiguration" is not as well known as some of the madonnas,
but shows in wonderful manner Raphael’s ability to handle a large group of people, without detracting from the central figure. It is now in the
Vatican Gallery, at Rome.

42. There are few great Old Testament stories which are not depicted by
Raphael. Among them are The Passage Through Jordan, The Fall of Jericho,
Joshua Staying the Sun, David and Goliath, The Judgment of Solomon, The
Building of the Temple, Moses Bringing the Tables of the Law, the Golden
Calf, and many others equally well known.

45. Fornarina. This well-known portrait is now in the Palazzo Barberini in Rome.

70. holy song on Milton’s tuneful ear. Poetry and painting are here spoken of together as producing permanent effects, and from the figure he uses we may add music to the list. Compare Longfellow’s "The Arrow and the Song." In the last stanza the field is still further broadened until his thought is that all we do lives after us.
