The Marriage of the Virgin by Raphael

           The Marriage of the Virgin, also known as Lo Sposalizio, this piece was commissioned by one Filippo degli Albezzini to hang in a church dedicated to Saint Francis. I chose this piece because I didn't want to talk about naked people personally but I really appreciated the atmosphere of the painting. No one seems to care that she is getting married off, maybe against her will and this maybe showing how woman were viewed as objects.
