The School of Athens, or Scuola di Atene in Italian,
is one of the most famous paintings by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael. It was painted between 1510 and 1511 as a part of Raphael's commission to decorate with frescoes the rooms now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. The Stanza della Segnatura was the first of the rooms to be decorated, and The School of Athens the second painting to be finished there, after La Disputà, on the opposite wall. The picture has long been seen as "Raphael's masterpiece and the perfect embodiment of the classical spirit of the High Renaissance.
The painting celebrates classical thought, but it is also dedicated to the liberal arts, symbolized by the statues of Apollo and Minerva. Grammar, Arithmetic and Music are personified by figures located in the foreground, at left. Geometry and Astronomy are personified by the figures in the foreground, at right. Behind them stand characters representing Rhetoric and Dialectic. Some of the ancient philosophers bear the features of Raphael's contemporaries. Bramante is shown as Euclid (in the foreground, at right, leaning over a tablet and holding a compass). Leonardo is, as we said, probably shown as Plato. Francesco Maria Della Rovere appears once again near Bramante, dressed in white. Michelangelo, sitting on the stairs and leaning on a block of marble, is represented as Heraclitus. A close examination of the intonaco shows that Heraclitus was the last figure painted when the fresco was completed, in 1511. The allusion to Michelangelo is probably a gesture of homage to the artist, who had recently unveiled the frescoes of the Sistine Ceiling. Raphael - at the extreme right, with a dark hat - and his friend, Sodoma, are also present (they exemplify the glorification of the fine arts and they are posed on the same level as the liberal arts).
The fresco achieved immediate success. Its beauty and its thematic unity were universally accepted.

--Sevgili Zeynebin ilgi alanlarının tümünü kapsayan, Rönesansın en ünlü ustalarından Raffaellonun Vatikan müzesini ziyaret edenleri büyülüyen bu 500 yıllık eserinde görüldüğünden kendisine armağan etmek istedim

Atina Okulu
Stanza Della Segnatura,1510-1511,Vatikan müzesi
Felsefeyi resmeder.Giyimin ve mimarininde uygulandığı gibi resim, klasik dönemi anlatır.Rafaello resmini 14. ve 15.yy.ın alışıldık alergorik figürlerine emanet etmek istemez,onun yerine düşünürlerin ve filozofların ciddi figürlerini grup halinde geniş bir mimari çatı altında bir araya getirir.Bu çatı yüksek bir kubbe ve kemerden oluşur(bak WS)Kompozisyonda baskın olan karakterler çevrede bir izdiham yaratmazlar yada o çevre tarafından boğulmazlar.Tablo hümanist düşünceyi selamlar.Aynı zamanda Apollo ve Minerva heykelleriyle sembolize edilen özgür sanatı temsil eder.Gramer,aritmetik ve müzik sol önde,geometri ve astronomi ise sağ önde(bu karede gösterilen detaylar;elinde pergelle geometrik teorisini anlatan Euklidestir ayaktaki figürler Ptolemy,Sodoma Raffaellodur)yer alan figürlerle kişiselleştirilir.Onların arkasında retorik ve diyalektiği betimleyen karakterler bulunur
Fresk tamamlanmasının ardından çok hızlı bir başarı kazanır.Tematik bütünlüğü ve güzelliği Dünya çapında başarı kazanır

Türçe bilgiler için,Boyut yayınları serisinin Raffaello albümü ve
Sayın Prof.Bülent Atalayın(batalay)Matematik ve MonaLisa adlı eserinden yararlandım
