I've always loved this painting and I'm glad I bought this. It's a very large poster, but that suits me just fine. My only complaint is that it's really only a part of the original. Thus, many of my favourite ancient philosophers, who stand on the left and right of the original, are totally absent. It's still a great poster though.
I bought this as a gift and the recipient was thrilled with this product!!

About the Artist
Italian Renaissance artist Raphael (1483 – 1520) painted works exemplifying his era’s ideals of beauty and harmony. A child prodigy, he exceeded the talents of the leading painter in his hometown of Urbino, Italy when he was 12. Raphael was noted for his brilliant Vatican stanzas, and the Madonnas he portrayed with unprecedented human sentiments. He also masterfully utilized depth, perspective, light and shadow, which made his figures appear warm, serene and lifelike. Pope Julius II’s respect for Raphael was so profound that he had planned to make him Cardinal.
