"Separation of Light from Darkness" by Raphael; Click here to see a larger image.

This reproduction is oil on cotton canvas, 10 feet wide by 5 feet high, painted in San Francisco, 1999

The original is a ceiling fresco in the Vatican, painted approx. 1517, just a few years after Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. I had never heard of the frescoes known as Raphael's Bible until researching this painting. In it Raphael (and his school) painted many of the same biblical scenes as are seen in the Sistine Chapel.

Currently in private collection, Beijing.
