Default question about the School of Athens

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Sanzio_01.jpg

I don't know if anyone has had the chance to see this work up close, but can anyone tell me where the edges of Raphael's fresco begin? Is the outer arc painted, and is the painted bas relief at the base also part of Raphael's fresco?

all the best, jp.

I don't remember for sure, but I think the base is part of the fresco. A lot of frescos take up the entire wall and ceiling of a room. My memory of it is that the hole room was done, although I don't know if it were all done by Raphael.

Thank you very much for dropping by just to answer my question. Most appreciated. (-: I'm still wondering about the arch. So it's open to the public?

all the best, jp.

The arch is painted, the only object non-painted in this wall is the door. This room, called "stanza della segnatura", is now part of the vatican museum.
