School of Athens (Raphael) Easter Egg - Michelangelo in Painting
If you look towards the bottom of the painting, towards the left, you will see a man sprawled out but himself. This is a portrait of michelangelo. The story goes, Michelangelo was working on the sistine chapel and didn't want anyone to see it, but Raphael snuck in to see it. When Michelangelo found out, he was livid. Raphael, just to spite him, added him in the paining.
Bramante is also in the picture, if you look he is in the middle of a grouping looking up.
