One of the creations of the Italian Renaissance painter Raphael is the St. Sebastian. This art was created in the years 1501 to 1502. Oil on wood was the medium. This painting measures forty three centimeters by thirty four centimeters. Today, this masterpiece is located at the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo, Italy. The painting has inspiration from the motives of the painter Perugino through the poses. It also has the inspirational touch of Francesco Francia through its colors. The arrow held by Sebastian is said to symbolize martyrdom in remembrance of St. Sebastian suffering from beatings, although the rest of the paintings do not show a hint of torment at all.
