The Parnassus is a painting by the Italian renaissance artist Raphael. It was painted in 1511 as the third part, after La disputa and The School of Athens, of Raphael's commission to decorate with frescoes the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. It is located in the Stanza della segnatura. The painting shows the mythological Mount Parnassus where Apollo resides. He is surrounded by the nine muses, nine poets from antiquity, and nine contemporary poets.
