Excerpt from Great Artists

To this day there is a spirit of reverence that inspires the visitor to this region. N o wonder that, in Raphael's time when this Spirit was fresh and strong, it gave a character of piety and sweetness to the works of all the painters of Umbria. From these two causes, the secluded position of the region and the in?uence of Saint Francis, arose what Is called the Umbrian school of painting. All painters belonging to this school made pictures very. Beautiful and full of fine religious feeling.

One April morning in 1483, to the home of Giovanni Santi, the painter, and his wife Magia, a dear little boy came, as millions of boys and girls have since come, to cheer and to bless. The father and mother were very proud of their little son, and feeling perhaps that a more than ordinary child had been given them, they gave him the name of Raphael, as one of good omen.
