Description:
Raphael Sanzio (Italian: Raffaello) (1483 - 1520)
St. Sebastian
Oil on wood, 1501-1502
43 cm × 34 cm (17 in × 13 in)
Accademia Carrara, Bergamo, Italy

St. Sebastian is a painting by the Italian High Renaissance artist Raphael, circa 1501-1502. It is housed in the Accademia Carrara of Bergamo, Italy.

The picture represents slight variations of Perugino's motives. In this painting graceful Peruginesque poses and the hazy transparency of colour characteristic of Francesco Francia, are fused together in a way that clearly indicates Raphael's presence. His ability to compose clear and balanced forms becomes typical this work on, as does the discreet and harmonious distillation of the formal elements of other painters in the clear, serene vision which seems characteristic of his artistic temperament.

Sebastian is holding an arrow, the symbol of his martyrdom, his little finger held up elegantly. Wearing a gorgeous red cloak and a gold embroidered shirt, with his hair elegantly arranged, there is nothing about this figure that recalls the torments St Sebastian suffered for his faith. This is a typical early work unanonimously attributed to Raphael and, in its ornamental beauty and elegiac mood, it is very reminiscent of the works of Perugino. St. Sebastion was beaten by rods to death. Gender- male.
