The School of Athens Supporting Art

By making the human subjects look "soft" and creating a piece of artwork that focused on a religious figure, the artist was able to convey a message in the style of the Renaissance art. Raphael also painted humans in a softer light, and focused on the scientists of the time period.
Although this art uses darker colors when compared to Raphael's work, it is a juxtaposition of color. Raphael used lighter colors to cast light onto the people, whereas this piece of art uses pinks and reds in order to make the people stand out. The architecture that is painted in the background is common to the time period, and is also largely visible in the School of Athens painting. 
Again, the use of architecture in the background is found in multiple pieces of Renaissance art. The subject matter of this painting again is a religious figure. The artist again uses reds and pinks to draw focus to specific people.
