CLEP Western Civ I

Category - Renaissance and Reformation

The three most important Italian painters during the Renaissance were Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and:
  1. Titian
  2. Filippo Brunelleschi
  3. Donatello
  4. Sandro Botticelli
  5. Raphael
Answer: E - Raphael was part of the triumvirate of Italian Renaissance painters who redefined the aesthetic of Western art. Raphael and Michelangelo both worked on St. Peter’s Basilica, the church in Vatican City that has been the center of the Catholic world since the city’s construction. Raphael’s work was associated with human grandeur, and he created more single subject portraits that his contemporaries. However, his greatest works are the frescoes that he painted in St. Peter’s- the rooms that house those works are generally referred to as the Raphael Rooms.
