The Three Philosophers: A Masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance

The Three Philosophers is an oil on canvas attributed to the Italian High Renaissance artist Giorgione. Commissioned by the Venetian nobleman Taddeo Contarini, the painting depicts three philosophers: a young one, a middle-aged one, and an elderly one. Completed around 1509, it is considered one of Giorgione's last works, as he died a year after finishing it. The painting is currently on display at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
