Giotto Legacy
Knowing Dante personally moved his influences into literature along with pre-existing influence in art and architecture.
Because he painted and designed artwork in chapels and cathedrals all over Europe, he influenced art across the continent. Had he not lived, the art world would be very different.
Giotto was born on a farm in Florence, Italy in 1267 A.D. He began to sketch nature while on his farm. The painter Cimabue was impressed with his sketches and he helped him become famous. He traveled through Europe painting cathedrals and making art. Giotto is thought to be one of the first Renaissance artists. Giotto died in 1336 A.D.
Lamentation of Christ-
It hangs in the Scrovengni Chapel. It depicts the mourning of Jesus after the crucifixion. It is a part of the Scenes from the life of Christ.
Ognissanti Madonna-
The translation is
Madonna Enthroned.
It is considered the first Renaissance painting because of its use of naturalism and not being gothic. It is displayed in the Uffizi gallery in Florence. It portrays Mary holding baby Jesus surrounded by saints and angels.
