and Renaissance The Cathedral of Notre-Dame Gothic Architecture The Last Supper by Jaume Serra Tempietto di San Pietro Renaissance Architecture The End Architecture was the most important and original form of art in the Gothic Period. Architects' solutions to supporting heavy ceilings over wide spans gives the architecture its structural characteristics. The Cathedral of Notre Dame shows all the popular techniques used in Gothic times, such as flying buttresses, ribbed vaults, and rose windows. Ribbed vaulting: arching and intersecting stone ribs composed of thin stone panels that support a vaulted ceiling surface

Nave: the main body of the church

Flying buttresses: leaned against the upper exterior of the building to counteract the vault’s outward thrust

Triforium: a shallow arched gallery above the nave

Clerestory: any high windows above eye level to let in light or fresh air Structures Gothic Art During the Gothic Period, oil paintings were very popular because of the way the oil merged the colors. Artists would use egg or glue from animal bones to bring pigments together. Italian Gothic art focused on the human body, importance of light in relation to color, and emotion. Artists wanted to create strong, solid paintings.

It was important that their paintings were in perspective and was in geometrical arrangement of figures. Sometimes the artists would paint themselves or other people in their paintings.
