Transcript of Masaccio

Tommaso di Giovanni di Simone Guidi Born in San Giovanni, Italy on December 21,1401. Died 1428 Philip is Awesome His father died when Masaccio was five, and his mother remarried a painter, Mariottodi Cristofano PS, EB He was possibly the pupil of the painter Masolino He was admitted into the Florence painter's guild in 1422, which
included many famous artists "Expulsion from the Garden of Eden"
By Masaccio
This is a painting made c.1426.
This piece is, like most of Masaccio's great works,a fresco
This depicts Adam and Eve's expulsion from the Garden of Eden,hence the title
The figures in the painting are Adam, Eve, and the angel escorting them
On the left is the version of the painting as they found it in the Brancacci Chapel
On the right is the restored version of the fresco
This picture shows few elements of H.I.S.S, however it does paint some famous bible figures (Adam and Eve) in a very human light. You can really see their emotions, that would be uncommon in Medieval times
P.S. This painting is "Holy Trinity" by Masaccio.
The inscription at the botton of the painting says, "What you are I was; What I am you will be."
Masaccio painted this in 28 separate sections. He put only as much plaster on the wall as he could paint in one time period.
The skeleton at the bottom is possibly Adam. EB The Father, God The Son, Jesus Mary Saint John the Evangelist, or Joseph Lorenzo Leni, the patron the wife of the patron The Holy Spirit, the dove Masaccio's other paintings include:
Sagra del Carmine
Madonna with Child with St. Anne
Madonna with Child Enthroned
St. Paul and St. Andrew
St. Peter Baptizing
Tribute Money
Miracle of Shadow
St. Peter and John Distributing Alms
The Raising of the Pagan Kings Son
Brancacci Chapel

As you can tell most of his works
were very religious.P.S. EB Masaccio shows skeptism through his portayal of God. In the middle ages, God was usually only depicted as a hand to show how he was an abstract idea that you could not fully understand. Masaccio shows him as a regular human man, with nothing extraordinary about him.
Masaccio uses one point perspective, with the vanishing point being at Jesus' feet. (In the original painting, you can see some of the diagonal lines he painted that go up into the archway.)
In the Santa Maria Novella Basilica, where the "Holy Trinity" is, it looks like there is an extended room behind Jesus and God, because his use of perspective is done so well. EB PS, EB EB, PS EB, PS H:There are emotions and they aren't portrayed with halos or anything signifying that they are not average humans. I: Although these are just two people they created the human race, which shows that individuals can achieve great things. S:This is a very religious piece of artwork but it shows Adam and Eve as sad people which shows that God might not always have beneficial interests. S:There is no skepticism that god doesn't exist
