Santi (Raffaello)



Artist ID:

Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, also Raffael da Urbino, Raffaello Santi, Raffaello Sanzio or Raphael for short (* 6 April or 28 March 1483 in Urbino; † 6 April 1520 in Rome) was an Italian painter and architect. He is considered one of the most important artists of the Italian High Renaissance. His work is admired for its clarity of form, its simple composition and its visual realisation of the Neoplatonic ideal of human greatness. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of the great masters of the period.

Raffael was enormously productive, ran an unusually large workshop and left behind a large body of work despite his early death at the age of 37. Many of his works are in the Vatican Palace, where the Raphael Rooms of frescoes are the central and largest work of his career. The most famous work is the School of Athens in the Vatican Stanza della Segnatura. After his early years in Rome, much of his work was executed by his workshop from his drawings, with considerable loss of quality. He was extremely influential during his lifetime, although his work was known outside Rome mainly from his collaborative printmaking.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
