The Sublime ‘Raphael’, One Of THE Greatest, Died This Day BUT Might Have Also Been BORN This Day, April 6!
We are NOT sure whether he was born April 6 or March 28.
But we do know that he DIED on April 6, 1520 — way, way too early. April 6 that year was Good Friday. It is said that he died, prematurely, from having had too much sex! What a way to go — though I kind of doubt whether that was what really killed him.
One of my TOP 5 favorite artists and how could be NOT be.
I am very partial to the ‘School of Athens’ and it might even feature on the cover of a future book.
But, let’s take few minutes off today to just savor the work, life and spirit of Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino.
What a MAN. What a talent.
SOME of his work that has struck a chord with I.
