All the frescos of Raphael, Volume 1
Raphael's frescos for the Vatican apartments were so far superior to the work of other painters that Pope Julius II had all the other works in these rooms destroyed at once in order that Raphael might have the honor of seeing his work preferred above all others. The ideals of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty provide the connection for the many frescos; these ideals are given body by means of a "supreme harmony of forms" and a "tonality of colors".
