Transcript of The Tribute Money

His works for the Chapel
Masaccio and another artist named Masolino worked together to paint the Brancacci chapel.

Most of the frescoes in the chappel consisted of St. Peter but there are two paintings expressing the temptation of Adam and Eve
His Techniques
Masaccio was the best painter of his generation because of his skill at recreating lifelike figures and movements as well as a convincing sense of three-dimensionality
Born December 21 1401 and died during the summer of 1428

Little is known about the cause of his death

One of the first artist to use linear perspective in his paitings.
Story Behind the Painting
A story from the new testament, and the situation is how Christ and the apostles have no money to pay the tax collector. To solve this problem Christ directs St. Peter to get money to pay the tax collector. A miracle happens and the money is created from the mouth of a fish.
Different Timelines
Why is it so good?
Although one normally reads from left to right, the first image is presented in the middle of the painting. The vanishing-point on Christ's forehead makes sure our eyes go there first.
