Transcript of Renaissance V.S. Middle Age Art for S.S. P.2

What They Have in Common
Art of the Renaissance and Middle Ages
An Example of Medieval Art
Renaissance Art
Middle Age Art
Middle Age Conclusion
Michelangelo's famous
painting on the ceiling of
the Sistine Chapel, known as the
"Creation of Adam"
Renaissance Conclusion
This example of Middle Age Art, called "Madonna and Child", was a popular icon for art in the Middle Ages, and even the Renaissance. Da Vinci drew a famous rendition of it.
Details and Critiques about the Medieval Painting
Although Middle Age art took a lot of time to create, they lacked many details, including realistic proportionality, realism, and the illusion of depth seen in many paintings today. All art was deeply religious and the art was valued more than the artist.
Emotion, Proportionality,and Content
Renaissance art was much better than medieval art for many reasons. They were very focused on realism--on portraying things as they look. Also, they used linear perspective in painting. They were not as focused on religion*. Art was often used to show the beauty in nature (including human beings), and depicted everyday life. They used light and shadow exceedingly well.

*This was caused mainly by secularism and individualism

Madonna and Child
By Duccio di Buoninsegna
Stiff Poses
Bad Depth Perception
-The child has adult proportions and anatomy
- Also, the child is disproportionate compared to his mother
- So, proportionality was not emphasized in medieval art
- Little to no perception of depth
- Low use of shading
- Lines do not converge towards one point on the horizon
- Use of egg based paint (tempera) harsh blends, and therefore less shading options

-Good sense and depiction of emotion
-Also, note the natural and lifelike pose
-Exactly proportional, adding to the exceedingly realistic effect
-Accurate depiction of human anatomy
-Religious portrayal decreased slightly due to secularism and individualism
-Glorified human body
- Painted around 1228
-Painted in tempera on wood
-Painted in the Italian city of Lucca
-Preserved in the Metropolitan Museum of Art
- The figures are not relaxed
- The actions of the subjects look very rigid
- Severe lack of lifelike naturality
Final Conclusion
-harmonius color blends
-Softer blend of colors due to the oil painting technology
- Michelangelo mixed colors to create rich hues
-shading is evident
Middle Age artists did not grasp perspective or shading nearly as well as Renaissance artists. They also used religious icons as subjects for their art much more than Renaissance artists.
This was caused by the Renaissance focus on secularism and individualism. Renaissance artists were experts with shading, and created a feeling of real emotion.

Renaissance artists grasped the concept of "vanishing points", which were used to create perspective. They also used oil paint, which allowed them to blend more colors, and more harmoniously.

Middle Age artists did not have this, so their colors were often less natural than those in Renaissance portraits. All in all, Renaissance art created a much better sense of perspective, emotion, and feeling than Middle Age art.

However, there were some similarities between the two. There was religious iconage in both eras, and artistic medias used remained very similar.

~Everybody get on at 2 o’clock sunday afternoon on the 12th so we can finish up our project.

-metal works
-these are all examples of how art was produced in the middle ages and during the Renaissance
-all of the following were used to beautify houses and other public places
Similarities Conclusion
-Religious iconage stayed a common subject in both eras
-many of the same ways to express artwork were included in both eras
Art in the Middle Ages
Thank You
For Watching!!!
-One popular religious subject was Madonna and Child
-Many different color blends
-Lines converge towards one point on the horizon, thus creating perspective. This line convergence is called a vanishing point. It is used in almost all Renaissance art.
-This creates depth
