The Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple - Raphael

This painting was painted in 1511 by Raphael. This painting shows the use of linear perspective with the pillars going down the hallway. It is very realistic as to what one would see looking down a hallway with tall pillars. The painting itself is a nice depiction of a biblical story in which God sends down a horseman with two youths to drive Heliodorus out of the temple, thus protecting treasures preserved in the temple. The painting located in the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City.
