There are some similarities between Da Vinci and Raphael. Both of the two people have shown talent in arts in the early years of their age. Also, they represent the highest level of arts of the High Renaissance period. They created large numbers of art works, and left priceless art treasure for later generations.
But just like we cannot find two same pieces of leaves in the world, there must be some differences between these two artists. First, the artistic styles of Da Vinci and Raphael are quite different. Work of Raphael is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition and for its visual achievement of the Neo-Platonism ideal of human grandeur.
In this sense, his work can be known as “highest level of the High Renaissance period”. And Da Vinci considered human body is the most beautiful research subjects in the natural world. He thought Human body is the wonderful work by natural world and artists should view human body as the core of painting objects. His best known drawings, for example, Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, reflect his exquisite artistic attainments.
Besides the difference in artistic styles, the achievement fields of the two artists are also not the same. Da Vinci, was not only a painter, he was also a sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. Raphael did not has as many experiences as Da Vinci, nor did he has heroism as Michelangelo. Although he only lived for 37 years, Raphael became the most popular artist in the period of renaissance. Raphael was extremely intelligent. His intelligence was specially reflected in that he was good at acquiring the advantages of others and then made some integrated creations.
Above all, to some extent , Da Vinci and Raphael are similar. They are the traditional trinity of great masters of the High Renaissance period. But they are more different in many aspects especially in artist styles and achievement fields. Both Da Vinci and Raphael are excellent artists in the history of human civilization.
