This Delphic Sybil, dear mate, is part of the huge fresco of the Universal Judgement painted on the ceiling of the Sixtin Chapel in St. Peter Basilica, Vatican, the most famous church of Christianity.
It's not by Leonardo da Vinci but by Michelangelo Buonarroti. There's also another Sybil painted, the Cuman one. They were two of the most famous oracles of ancient Roman times ....
I obviously saw this whole painting which is the most famous, gorgeous and demanding one ever, a real cyclopic size enterprise too, carried out by an absolute genius of drawing, painting and sculpture as Michelangelo (and a very good poet too as a hobby).
Separated by few years and by hardly a generation, at that time,we had in Italy Leonardo da Vinci (Leonardo); Michelangelo Buonarroti (Michelangelo), Raffaello Sanzio (Raffaello or Raphael) and Tiziano Vecellio (Tiziano or Titien).
No other century, I think, saw four number one painters like them together ...

thanks for the info Caesar, in a book i have they think Raphael was the best, what one get's your vote ??? :confused::confused::confused: :D:D:D

In tis case of judgement, I prefer to just set an absolutely top ranking category where, personally, taking also into account their excellence or originality for their age and the follow-on influence they had, I'd put all the three of them, but also Giotto, Antonello da Messina, Titien, Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Velasquez, Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Turner, Corot, Ingres, Fattori, Manet, CÚzanne, Mir˛,Picasso, De Chirico, Magritte, Kandisky, Klee (I'm probably forgetting some others). Just below there are many other who are still clearly superior to the mass of other painters and, in there too, even using the least chauvinistic approach, You'd find lots of my country fellows.
I refrain tough to take a position concerning the art after the II WW, because it would be absolutely impossible, due to quite different visions and definitions about art and too many market driven considerations and forces (actually they work very much also backwards and down to the XIX century painters so that, should You rank a painter from the price of his/ her works, Van Gogh would be considered Nr. 1, but he would certainly still be the first one to doubt on that).

Caesar surely not Cezanne in my book I've never rated him :confused::confused::confused:
alway's felt he paid for his pludit's after he copped his inhertence and got that good agent :D:D:D

.. in that case I must say that he was for sure fundamental for many subsequent great masters going beyond impressionism, although he's not in the bunch of the ones leaving me speechless either but except for very few of his paintings ...:D
There are also many Picasso paintings i don't like and, as cubist, I prefer Braque.
For instance I like Klimt and Schiele better (just to correctly refrain from citing Italian names) ...

yeah e leave's me speechless all the time, as for those two think of all those bird's :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D------------E/S
