Wedding of Alexander and Roxane
The Wedding of Alexander and Roxane was created in 1516-18. Alexander as in Alexander the Great and his wife Roxane. Historians belive that this marriage was both out of love and political advantage. This wedding brought the persians and the Greeks together. This painting is one of the most important works that Sodoma did. The Wedding of Alexander is on the ceiling of the Villa Farnesina, one of Agostino Chigi's palaces in Rome. Sodoma's fresco sits along side frescoes by artists like Raphael Sanzio, Sebastiano del Piombo, Giovanni da Udine, Giulio Romano, and Giovan Francesco Penni.
