The Sistine Madonna by Raphael

[A vision] comes only into existence while the technical and physical work of painting and writing goes on. To what may end by being a masterpiece an artist may come at first with a mind empty and stone cold. It may be that “Another commonplace model to paint!” was all that Raphael thought as he began the Sistine Madonna.
