Transcript of Renaissance Art Museum

By: Darshan Desai Renaissance Art 101 Leonardo da Vinci He was one of the earliest artists working with the idea of perspective, by creating scupltures.
Famous for many things including the youthful sculpture of David in Florence. Donatello David Masaccio The first great painter of the Italian Renaissance
Born in 1401, died in 1428.
Probably was the most influential of Renaissance.
Historians claim that he inspired the style of art that typifies art of the period.
Even though he died at the age of 27 he made up a different view of art. He went form flat to 3-D, which gave it more depth.
His most famous work can be found in the Brancacci Chapel in Santa Maria del Carmine in Florence. When painting people, Masaccio gave his subjects proportionality, anatomical correctness and individual identities, unlike the preordained, cardboard figures of Byzantine iconography. Madonna Enthroned w/ St. Anne The Virgin and Child is one of the earliest works credited by Masaccio. But for one, the angels, very delicate in their tender forms and pale, gentle colouring, are from the more Gothic brush of Masolino; the angel in the upper right hand curve reveals the hand of Masaccio.

Tour Guides Tribute Money The landscape in the background and Peter by the river taking the coin are painted farther back into the painting than the other two scenes and are almost void of color, the buildings on the right, although not present in the story from the bible, serve to provide classical structure that pushes light towards the center of the painting. The lines and the center of the structure are clearly aimed at Christ's head where all the light converges. Born 1452, died 1519
In his life he created , the most famous ones, Mona Lisa and the Last Supper which are works in oil.
He was very accurate and also never rushed which allowed him to prefect his work.
Besides his paintings, he left us a legacy of detailed drawings of the human anatomy, plans for a tank, helicopter, ideas on the construction of multi-level canal and road systems. Born: March 6, 1475, Caprese Michelangelo Died: February 18, 1564, Rome
An Italian Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art.
Artist of the David sculpture. Michelangelo Buonarroti The Sistine Chapel ceiling, painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, is a cornerstone work of High Renaissance art. Central to the ceiling decoration are nine scenes from the Book of Genesis of which the Creation of Adam is the best known, having an iconic standing equalled only by Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, the hands of God and Adam being reproduced in countless imitations. David The Sistine Chapel David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft)[1] marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David. Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino He was anItalian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. Having a large work shop and a death at age 37 much of his work still remains today. Many of his works are found in the Apostolic Palace of The Vatican, where the frescoed Raphael Rooms were the central, and the largest, work of his career. The best known work is The School of Athens in the Vatican Stanza della Segnatura. Painted between 1510 and 1511 as a part of Raphael's commission to decorate with frescoes the rooms now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican.The Stanza della Segnatura was the first of the rooms to be decorated, and the second painting to be finished there, after La Disputa, on the opposite wall. The School of Athens The Marriage of the Virgin An oil painting. Completed in 1504 for a Franciscan church in Città di Castello.
Painting depicts a marriage ceremony between Mary and Joseph. It changed hands several times before settling in 1806 at the Pinacoteca di Brera. Holy Trinity The fresco is located along the middle of the basilica's left aisle. Although the configuration of this space has changed since the artwork was created, there are clear indications that the fresco was aligned very precisely in relationship with the sight-lines and perspective arrangement of the room at the time; particularly a former entrance-way facing the painting; in order to enhance the tromp l'oeil effect. Not much is known about the details of the commission; no contemporaneous documents naming the altar-piece's patron(s) have been found. Judith and Holofernes The bronze sculpture can be seen in the Hall of Lilies (Sala dei Gigli), in the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence, Italy. A copy stands in one of the sculpture's original positions on the Piazza della Signoria, in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. Judith is considered the symbol of liberty, virtue and victory of the weak over the strong in a just cause. There is very little omfo on this sculpture. he Renaissance art historian Giorgio Vasari mentions it as work with no flaws and a perfect anatomy. Executed by Donatello when he was more than sixty years old, after he had spent a decade in Padua. Magdalene Penitent The Crucifixion The depictions of the two central events from the Crucifixion and Deposition are placed side by side to form a long side of the Passion Pulpit. Only a few of the soldiers, who are depicted with grim expressions in the relief of the Crucifixion, are paying any attention to the grief of the mourning women at the foot of Christ's cross. Mona Lisa Painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506. It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic, on permanent display at the Musée du Louvre in Paris. The Last Supper The painting represents the scene of The Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, as it is told in the Gospel of John. covers an end wall of the dining hall at the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy. The Last Supper specifically portrays the reaction given by each apostle when Jesus said one of them would betray him. All twelve apostles have different reactions to the news, with various degrees of anger and shock. Virgin of the Rocks The Virgin of the Rocks (sometimes the Madonna of the Rocks) is the name used for two Late Renaissance paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, of the same subject, and of a composition which is identical except for two significant details. 1 painting hangs in Paris while the other is in London. They both stretch 2 meters high and are painted with oil. Even though the dates and stuff are known the actuall documents have not been found. Sistine Madonna An oil painting by Raphael. Finished few years befor his death, it was the last of the painter's Madonnas and the last painting he completed with his own hands. In Germany t resides as one of the central pieces in the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, finally after a whole lot of relocation. The Last Judgment This work is prtrayed on a wall in the Sistine Chapel, same as the the cieling painting he did also. It also spans out to each end of the wall so it probably is pretty big in size. It is a depiction of the Second Coming of Christ and the final and eternal judgment by God of all humanity. The souls of humans rise and descend to their fates, as judged by Christ surrounded by prominent saints. The Expulsion from the Garden of Eden
