Part 3: Raphael in Urbino, Florence, and Rome

Hailing from the idyllic hill town of Urbino, Raffaello Sanzio was arguably the most gifted painter of the High Renaissance. Raphael rapidly ascended the ranks of the artistic world. He moved from an assistant of the artist Perugino around 1500, to the most sought-after painter in Italy by 1512. Before his premature death at the age of 37, he worked for cardinals, popes, dukes, and other wealthy patrons.
