Transcript of art history

Hall of bulls Lacaux, France, 16,000-14,000 B.C.E. Water Worn Pebble, Makanpansgat,South Africa, 3,000,000 B.C.E. Human with Feline head, Germany, 30,000-28,000 B.C.E. Venus of Willendorf, Willendorf Austria, 28,000-25,000 B.C.E. Woman holding Bison Horn, Laussel, France, 25,000-20,000 B.C.E. Bison licking his flank, La Madeleine, France, 12,00 B.C.E. Two Bison, Le Tuc d'Audoubert, france 15,000-10,000 B.C.E, Spotted Horses with Negitive hand prints, 23,000-22,000 B.C.E. Chinese Horse, 16,000-14,000 B.C.E. Aurochs, Horses and Rhinoceroses, Chauvet Cave France, 15,000-13,000B.C.E. The Well Scene, Lascaux, France,16,000-14,000 B.C.E. Human Skull with restored features, Jericho, 7200-6700 B.C.E. Landscaper of Volcanic eruption, Hoyuk, Turkey, 6150 B.C.E. Standard of Ur (peace), Iraq, 2600-2400 B.C.E. Standard of Ur, (war) iraq, 2600-2400 B.C.E. Standard of Ur
The Standard of Ur is an ancient Mesopotamian chronicle of of period of war and the peace that followed. It is a colorful and detail piece that clearly illustrates the events it contains. telling the story through images may be older than even oral tradtions, dating back to Paleolithic caves. The Standard of Ur also shows that the need to preserve and continue the telling of tales an history are an important component to the human condition. The White Temple and Ziggurat, Warka, Iraq, 3200-3000 B.C.E. The White Temple
The White Temple created by the Sumerians of sun baked clay bricks was an early temple platform with no interior rooms. Pre-dating the monuments of the Egyptians by several centuries the Ziggurat of the White Temple is one of menkinds earliest attempts to build steps and towers to heaven and may have been the inspiration for the Bibles Tower of Babel story. Inanna, Female Head, Warka, Iraq, 3200-3000B.C.E. Inanna?
Is this the famed Inanna, mother Goddess of love and war? Inanna who later becomes Ishtar would remain thr most important female deity for all the existence of Sumeria. many believe she is the source of many other goddess figures throughout muthology. Mortal or Goddess, the head of Inanna is raw but emotional, solem and potent. Warka Vase, Warka, Iraq, 3200-3000 B.C.E. Two Worshippers, Tel Asmar,Iraq, 2700 B.C.E. Paleolithic- Neolithic Bull Headed Harp, Tell Muqayyar, Iraq, 2600-2400 B.C.E. Head of an Akkadian, Iraq, 2250-2200 B.C.E. Akkadian
His stois face peers beyond even the cruel damage vandals have inflicted upon him, soloem and maybe thinking deep thoughts. This ancient but powerful image strikes the heart of the viewer and begs him/her to ask questions. Who was he, was he happy, a king or a soldier? Even though very stylalized this is an image the flows and still feels natural despite the rigid style and execution of the work. Stele of Naram-Sin, Susa, Iran, 2254-2218, B.C.E. Naram-Sin
Descriptive and graphic, a story told in the action portrayed in solid stone, the conquering hero, the fallen foe and the blessings of the Heavens. The stele is detailed and strong while still being filled with emotion and motion, it is fluid and dramatic as the artist stepped away from convention and staggered the register. Ziggurat of Ur, Iraq, 2100 B.C E Zggurat of Ur
This is an inspiriring testimony of the skills and ingenuity of ancient societies. This huge stairway to the Heavens must certainly be the inspiration for the Tower of Babel story. Atop the solid structure a temple complex would have invited the faithful to worship and make offerings to the gods, the temples on top being the highest possible point to get closer to the deities. The ziggurat would also have been a statement to the power of the Gods and the government. Banquet scene, Ur, Iraq, 2600-2400 B.C.E. Gudea,Telloh, Iraq,2100B.C.E. Gudea
Leader, builder and shameless self promoter Gudea led as aservant of the people and an agent of the gods, he built and re-built temples and spared no exspense in letting the people know he was such person and had done such things. One of his exspensive portraits shows the ruler with an over flowing vase of water, with fish swimming from the water, this symbolism is used to represent the giver of life, the bringer of prosperity and image of a godlike being. Gudea acted in fashion that made the proclamations of his portraits believable. Lammassu, Khorasabad, Iraq, 720-705 B.C.E. Lammassu
Cool because it is in Dungeons and Dragons the geek game! The artist also were creative with the use of techniques to give the appearance four legs from multiple angles. Ashurbanipal hunting lions, Kuyunjik, Iraq, 645-640 B.C.E. Ishtar Gate, Babylon, Iraq, 575 B.C.E. Mesopotamia and Persia Palette of King Narmer, Predynastic Egypt, 3000-2920 B.C.E. Step Pyramid, Imhotep, Egypt, 2630-2611 B.C.E. Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt, Fourth Dynasty, 2551-2490 B.C.E. Pyramids of Giza
The last remaining "Seven Wonders of the World", a statement of power, wealth and immortality. The Great Pyramids built with the labor of the faithful, for a God on earth, millions of man hours and millions of tons of stone, showing the true power of the human spirit and ingenuity. The Great Sphinx, Gizeh, Egypt, Forth Dynasty, 2520-2494 B.C.E Sphinx
Carved from wind hewned stone, the Sphinx is a mystery and an icon figure, massive and commanding. Looking out over the Gizeh complex the Sphinx seems as both gaurdian and seeker, a pondering spirit ready to pounce, filled with motion as it is with solace. It has seen Egyptian rulers and Napoleon, the German armies, the Italians and the English and the Sphinx will witness the coming and going of many more Empires. Khafre Enthroned, Egypt Fourth Dynasty, 2550-2494 B.C.E. Menkaure and Khamerernebty, Gizeh,Egypt, 2490-2472 B.C.E. Seated Scribe, Saqqara, Egypt, 2500 B.C.E. Seated Scribe
Humble and real, honest and hard working, these are the thoughts i see when I look upon this face. Not a grand ruler, draped in finery and the blessings of the Gods, a simple working man happy in plying his trade and an honored trade at that. Wearing the pudgy body of a scholar and not the sculpted physique of a King or warrior, his humanity flows out of him. This is a beautiful step towards more realistic art. Ti watching hippopotamus hunt, Egypt, Fifth Dynasty, 2450-2350 B.C.E. Mortuary Temple of Hatsheput, Egypt, Eighteenth Dynasty, 1473-1458 B.C.E. Hatsheput
The only true female ruler of Egypt, She led a massive building campaign and made the obilisk a popular structure. Wearing a false beard Hatsheput would rule Egypt far better than her step-son whom she grabbed power from and would later pay for such courage. She would have all but been erased from history had Akennaten had had his way. Temple of Ramses, Egypt, Nineteenth Dynasty, 1290-1224 B.C.E. Senmut with Princess Nefrura, Egypt,18th Dynasty, 1470-1460 B.C.E. Nebamun hunting fowl, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, 1400-1350 B.C.E. Funerary Banquet, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, 1400-1350 B.C.E. Akhenaton, Karnak, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, 1353-1335 B.C.E. Akhenaton
Dabbled in monotheism and broke from tradtion even in art, uprooted the capitol of Egypt from and moved an entire population on a whim. He would be rewarded for his vision by nearly being erased from history, his new capitol abandoned upon his death and his name and image struck from his monuments. If not for his famous but ill fated heir Tut and his legendary tomb, Akhenaton would all but be forgotten. Nefertiti, Thutmose, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, 1353-1335 B.C.E. Nefertiti
This is beauty, this a regal and this is fine art. the best most living art to date, it breathes and has a pulse. This brilliant combination of sculpture and paint brings a Goddess on Earth to vivid life, eyes you can look into and skin you wanna touch, lips you want to kiss. This is to me the highest achievment of Egyptian art. One would believe than if you touched her neck, there would be a pulse throbbing through her veins, warmth from her skin, gorgeous! Tiye, Ghurab, Egypt, 18th Dynasty, 1353-1335 B.C.E. Death Mask of Tutankhamen, Egypt,18th Dynasty, 1323 B.C.E. Tutankhamen
Most people think of this when they think of ancient Egypt, it is an iconis image of the culture, but why? He was a short lived ruler that left nothing behind except a grand and un-looted tomb. This tomb was even discovered by accident under a pile of construction rubble, an unknown ruler thrust into the spot light. There are far more intriquing figures of Egyptian history. Egypt Figurine of Woman, Syros, Greece, 2600-2300 B.C.E. Male Harp Player, Keros, Greece, 2600-2300 B.C.E. Palace at Knossos, Crete, 1700-1370 B.C.E. Stairwell, Interior of Knossos, Crete, 1700-1370 B.C.E. La Parisienne, Knossos,Crete, 1400-1370 B.C.E. Bull Leaping, Knossos, Crete, 1400-1370 B.C.E. Landscape with swallows, Thera, Greece, 16502-1625 B.C.E. Octopus Flask, Crete, 1450 B.C.E. Snake Goddess, Knossos, Crete, 1600 B.C.E. Snake Goddess
Best thing about art, nudity, breasts and more nudity. Beautiful expression of the power of the woman, creator and giver of life, powerful and in control, of herself and nature. The female is a constant part of the cycle of nature, life and death, and as ancient art illustrates, the woman was once respected and idolized for this, her natural power. Harvesters vase, Crete, 1500-1450 B.C.E. The Code of Hammurabi, Susa, Iran, 1780 B.C.E. Hammurabi
Creator of the first truly codified laws, these laws were also applied across the largest number of citizens as ever before and they were the most comprehensive set of laws anyone had ever seen. The laws set forth by Hammurabi would endure the ages and seep into the fabric of many religions and cultures, Sharia and Biblical laws are borrowed from the code and it is the source of the quote "do unto others..."and " an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth". It would influence the formation of the Jewish faith and through their faith, the Codes of Hammurabi would find their way into Rome, Christianity and Islam. This hard copy is a great treasure and a valuable insight into how mankind has arrived here today. Lions Gate, Mycenae, Greece, 1300-1250 B.C.E. Treasury of Atreus, Mycenae, Greece, 1300-1250 B.C.E. Atreus
The treasury is named for King Atreus, who makes an appearance in Homer's Iliad and that is what makes this so very interesting. The discoveries at Mycenae were led by the same men and women the located and verified the existence of Homers Troy, the Treasury at Mycenae may have or have not have been built by Atreus, but it is linked to Troy and that connection makes historians look deeper for answers and ask different questions. The great oral epic written down by Homer, passed down for 500 years before Homer, has its place like the Bible as a source for historians. Interior of the Treasury of Atreus, Mycenae, Greece, 1300-1250 B.C.E. Funerary Mask ( Agamemnon), Mycenae, Greece, 1600-1500 B.C.E. Agamemnon
300 years too old to be Agamemnon, if he were a real king and though not the discover that Schliemann had hoped for, it was a great find none the less. Beautiful hammered gold and and early Greek attempt at life size sculpture. It may not be the face of the famed king that assaulted Troy, it is gorgeous and important to history and art. Two Goddesses, Mycenae, Greece, 1400-1250 B.C.E. Warrior Vase, Mycenae, Greece, 1200 B.C.E. Prehistoric Agean Kroisos, Anavysos, Greece, 530 B.C.E. Calf Bearer, Athens, Greece, 560 B.C.E. Calf Bearer
The young man carrying a calf will become an icon symbol of leadership and divinity, most notably as " Christ as the good Shepherd in Christian art. Tending the flock as leader, healer and protector, the shepherd becomes the father. this may have not been the intent in ancient Greece but this image will gain that meaning in time to come. Peplos Kore, Athens Greece, 530 B.C.E. Kritios Boy, Athens Greece, 480 B.C.E. Erechtheion, Athens, Greece, 421-405 B.C.E. Caryatids, Athens, Greece, 421-405 B.C.E. Polykeitos the Younger, Epidauros, Greece, 350 B.C.E. Polykleit0s
The ancient Greeks enjoyed a good performance, whether a wrenching drama or a sporting event and their designs would be copied and improved upon by the Romans. Even today the theater and sports are seeped in Greek tradition. Gallic Chieftain killing himself, Hellenistic, Roman copy. 230-220 B.C.E. Gallic Chieftain
This is not a sculpture of a disrespected foe or a hideous barbaric killer, this is a noble and valiant foe, filled with a sense of honor. The Greeks may have viewed the Gauls as barbarians ( non-Greeks) but it is clear that there was respect for their enemy, this respect the Greeks would later share with Rome as it also would come to battle the Gauls. It is possible that Julius Caesar commissioned the replicas, having written of his respect for the "Noble barbarians" in his history of the Gallic Wars. Dying Gaul, Hellenistic, Roman copy, 230-220 B.C.E. Dying Gaul
Anguish, regret and pain, that is what the viewer sees when they gaze upon this, the raw emotion as well as pronounced action. we can almost see the heavy of his chest as he gasps for breathe, feel the dimming of his eyes as his life and vision narrows. This is the power that an artist has, to strike the viewer with thunder bolts and tears, stir thoughts and emotions at first glance, to draw you in and captivate you. Sleeping Satyr, Hellenistic, 230-200 B.C.E. Sleeping Eros, Hellenistic, 150-100 B.C.E. Eros
Do you really read every paragraph, or are you way too stoked to go to Germany? Any way this is a fat ugly baby, I cannot only write about the ones I like and this gives me the heebie jeebies, creepy little kid! Absolutely my least favorite of all, it is like the kid that picks his nose and eats it! Ewwwww! Seated Boxer, Hellenistic, 100-50 B.C.E. Boxer
Again we see the ability to convey emotion and provoke a reaction from the person seeing the work of the artist. The Hellenistic artists mastered capturing the moment, like a camera but that second is frozen in stone or bronze. The brutality of this man profession, the hurt in his face and body can be felt and empathized with. Old market woman, Hellenistic, 150-100 B.C.E. Athanadoros, Hagesandros, and Polydoros of Rhoades, Hellenistic, early 1st century Athanadoros....
This is full of action and drama, the struggle can be felt and seen, the desperation of the scene, the agony of the father as he frantically tries to save his sons. The motion the artist achieved with the stone is amazing, it is fluid and convincing. You can feel the serpent constricting, its fangs inflicting their venom, so moving and captivating. Man with portraits...Rome 1st century Portraits
To show the rest of Rome your prestige one did not just spend the coin to fund a statue of themselves, they also would include their family in that portrait even if they have long since past. Not just a testimony to stature but also a homage to those dear to them. This shows a softer side of Roman people. Amphitheater, Pompeii, Italy, 70 B.C.E. Amphitheater
Borrowed from the Greeks and improved the amphitheater was the center of Roman life throughout the Empire. Races, pitched fights, dramas and of course political meetings, could all be seen at the amphitheater, it was also the social hangout and gathering place for all classes of Roman. Eventually they will become the symbol of the brutality and debauchery of the elite and the Empire itself. House of Vettii, Pompeii, Italy, 62-79 C.E. Vettii
I would have totally hung out in this house, it is awesome, open, well lit with natural light and well built. The horror of the eruption did little to scar this home physically, the devastation though would ensure that Pompeii stayed buried for centuries. Second style wall painting, Boscoreale, Italy, 50-40 B.C.E. Augustus, primaporta, Italy, 20 B.C.E. Augustus
The first True emperor of Rome, defeater of Marc Anthony and conqueror of the Germans. The great nephew of Julius, it was Augustus that ended the civil wars and gained control of the empire for his family until Nero. Step Father to Titus, grandfather to Claudius and great grandfather to Caligula. The republic would grant him more and more power until it became only a memory, the empire would last more than a millenium. The Colosseum, Rome, Italy, 70-80 C.E. Colosseum
The Flavian Amphitheater is the zenith of stadium construction, seating 50,000 spectators, shaded by a retractable sun screen was host to the most epic spectacles ever seen. days upon weeks of games, involving imported beasts and gladiators. Some accounts say that the arena floor could be flooded for mock naval battles and thousands met their death in the name of " bread and circuses". Stadiums today emulate the grandeur of the Colosseum, but fall very short of capturing the true essence of the accomplishment. Arch of Titus, Rome, Italy, 81, C.E. Arch of Titus
Built to celebrate the life and victories of Emperor Titus, by his brother Domitian. The creation of monuments to mark great events has been practiced long before the Romans, like most things the Romans borrowed they mastered and improved on what they borrow. Napoleon would as Emperor create his own Arch of Triumph. Column of Trajan, Rome, Italy, 112 C.E. Trajan
Seen as the greatest emperor since Augustus, Tajan was from Spain and the first non-Italian to be in power. Trajan expanded the Empire, went on a massive building campaign and create many new public programs. he was popular and well loved, and future rulers would be measured against him. Pantheon, Rome, Italy, 118-125 C.E. Equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius, Rome, Italy, 175 C.E. Marcus Aurelius
The horse a symbol of wealth and power, skill and duty, shown atop such a noble beast grants nobility to the rider. Though not to be out shined by their steed, for a long time the riders will be much larger than life and even dwarf the animal. Not till much later will we see the horse as a huge creature bearing a noble rider. Constantine, Rome, Italy, 315-330 C.E. Constantine
He made the roman Empire a Christian state and yet he himself never converted. many believe this was a shrewd and calculated move to build a buffer zone between the Muslim Ottomans and what was left of th old Roman Empire. If this was Constantine's plan it worked, as the islamic force ever saw Rome or most of the western half of the empire. The Romans The Good Shepherd the story of Jonah, Rome, Italy Late Antiquities, early Fourth century. Christ as the Good Shepherd, Rome, Italy, 300-350 C.E. Good Shepherd
This figure has been seen before, yet without the effect of the Christian version. This is the Shepherd, leading, caring for and saving his flock, who are but sheep that must follow his word. the attraction of belonging to a large and loving family with a strong and potent patriarch at the head, aws the message of the Church and the message of this statue. Christ as the good Shepherd ( Mosaic), Ravenna, Italy, 425 C.E. The parting of Abraham and Lot, Rome, Italy,432-440 C.E. The Miracle of the Fishes and Loaves, Ravenna, Italy, 504 C.E. Late Antiquity Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, Turkey, 532-537 Hagia Sophiia
This is perhaps the most beautiful building ever created, the outside does the interior any justice. Now a mosque this extraordinary monument to the creative power of the human mind and the unstoppable human spirit, was once a church and only a few of the original Christian Mosaics have survived. San Vitale. Ravenna, Italy, 526-547 San Vitale
Had to write something since when my super cool Prof. wins the lottery she is going to take us all there. Though I am not all that into churches, I would like to see it and I hear the restroom is epic. I will get to see it when I go to study in Rome in three years or so. Choir and aspe of San Vitale, Ravenna, Italy, 526-547 Justinian and Theodora (mosaics) Ravenna, Italy, 547 Justinian
Being a devout Christian, Justinian truly sought to be the agent of God on earth and acted as both ruler and head of the church. He had married a common woman and lifted up as high as himself, often refering to his empress as the Mother of the church. In the two mosaics each is seen holding bowls of bread as if offering Holy Communion, establishing their roles as leaders of the church. Saint Apollinaris among sheep, Ravenna, Italy, 533-549 Transfiguration of Jesus, Mount Sanai, Egypt, 548-565 Virgin and child between the saints, Theodore and George, Mount Sanai, Egypt, early seventh century Virgin and Child Enthroned, Istanbul, Turkey, 867 Enthroned
The baby Jesus in most early works is a freakishly grown infant, looking more like a dwarf than a human baby and that is kind of the point. The savior would not be a crying, cranky poop factory. The image of the Christian prophet was at first very clean, almost sterile and a glorified version of the perfect being. Even his torment on the cross was represented very tame in Byzantine art. Christ as Pantokrator, Daphni,Greece, 1090-1100 Virgin of Compassion, early 12th century Christ Savior of Souls, 14th century Byzantine Chi-rho-iota, Book of Kells, Iona, Scotland, 9th century Kells
The detail is amazing, every inch is a spectacle for the eye, the sharp lines and precision is unmatched. Though a Christian creation, the deep rooted traditional art of the Celts is clearly visible in the knot work and filigree. From barbarians to monastic scholars, the Celts did not lose their heritage. Animal head post, Oseberg, Norway, 825 The Danes
The scourge of any coastal town that they had access to, the Vikings were known to be savage and brutal. The violent men of the north were also expert metal smiths and artist, decorating their weapons, home and ships with delicate and detailed patterns and images. Equestrian Portrait of Charlemagne, Metz, France, 9th century Charlemagne
He united Europe with the horse and sword, then divided it among his four sons. This division would result in the first steps Europe would take towards nationhood. While trying to revive the old Roman empire, Charlemagne would instead set the stage for a Europe of rival kingdoms, cultures and nationalities. Saint Matthew, Hautvillers, France, 816-835 Matthew
Still has some Byzantine influence in that the message is still more important than the beauty or realism of the art. The scriptures role is vastly more influential than the power of the human form and yet there is more movement and life in this work than has been seen for centuries. The fabric flows and the face has expression. Saint Matthew, Aachen, Germany, 800-810 Matthew II
More vibrant and vivid, there is motion in his clothes and his expressions. There is more volume in the background and much improved perspective. The most note worthy is that the earl Medieval work is less cartoonish than the Byzantine works. Lindau Gospels, Saint Gall, Switzerland, 870 Lindau
The pure labor that had to have gone into this is miraculous, the detailed settings of the stones and hammered gold are breath taking. Some works of art can make a non-believer want to believe so very much, the faith and love that can compel a person to labor so intensely is unimaginable. Westwork of the Abbey church, Corvey, Germany,873-885 God accusing Adam and Eve, Hildesheim, Germany, 1015 Crucifix of Archbishop Gero, Cologne, Germany, 970 Early Medieval Europe Greeks Last Judgement, Gislebertus, Autun, France, 1120-1135 Last Judgement
The horrific nature of religion is interesting, giants and monsters and the end of the world. The graphic story telling ability of the Romanesque, in unforgiving stone, is astounding. The message is clear to even the illiterate masses,fear and repent, obey or be damned. Saint Foy, 10th century Saint Foy
The reliquary is another gruesomely compelling aspect of the Catholic Church, bits of bone and flesh, tucked away in ornate containers. These artifacts were really used as a tourist trap, a way to get the faithful to frequent the local cathedral. Foy is a mournful tale of a faithful little girl martyred for her faith, beheaded and then stuck in a golden casket made to look like a young girl. Creepy and sounds like the lead into a horror film. Morgan Madonna, Auvergne, France, 12th century Morgan Madonna
This is another little man Christ, I am waiting for Mary to drink a glass a water while Jesus does his ABC's. In perfecting the savior, making him the son of God and perfect, the artists of the age took away his humanity, made him a God, not a man. This is how a carpenter became God almighty. Hildegard, Bingen, Germany, 1050-1079 Hildegard
This is a notable woman in the fact that she not only was given credit for her visions has valid communication with God, she also influenced church doctrine and was even allowed to lead communion and give sermons. Cathedral complex, Pisa, Italy, 1063-1174 The Creation and Temptation of Adam and Eve, Wiligelmo, Modena, Italy, 1110 Romanesque Ambulatory, Sainte- Denis, France, 1140-1144 Sainte- Denis
The ceiling looks like an M.C. Escher drawing, at time it defies logic. The inter locking web work of the arches would have impressed any Roman architect and many modern ones also. Once again it makes me wish that I could find faith, the art of religion is so very impressive. Chartres Cathedral, Chartres France, 1145-1155 Royal Portal, Chartres, France, 1145-1155 Notre Dame, Paris, France, 1163-1225 Notre Dame
I just want to know a few things about Notre Dame, One, why is the bell ringer a crippled Japanese guy, two, if it is in France, why is the football team in America called the fighting Irish? It is impressive and once it was the highest building in Europe, for more than a century. Rose window and lancets, Chartres Cathedral, France, 1220 The Kings Chapel, Sainte-Chapelle, Paris France, 1243-1248 The Kings Chapel
This is spectacular, it looks like it was created by Lucas Light and Sound or Dreamworks. It has an almost no walls at all effect, the translucent and illuminated aspect of the design makes you think you could pass through the glass like a car driving through a rainbow. The Virgin of Paris, Notre Dame, Paris, France, 14th century Virgin of Jeanne, Sainte-Denis, 1339 Ekkehard and Uta, Naumberg, Germany, 1249-1255 Equestrian Portrait, ( Bamberg Rider), Bamberg, Germany, 1235-1240 Rottgen Pieta, Rhineland, Germany. 1300-1325 Gerhard of Cologne, Cologne, Germany, 1248 Gothic Betrayal of Jesus, Giotto, Italy, 1305-1306 Interior of the Arena Chapel, Giotto, Padua, Italy,130-1306 Lamentation, Giotto, Padua, Italy, 1305 Madonna Enthroned, Cimabue, Florence, Italy, 1280-1290 Madonna Enthroned, Giotto, Florence, Italy, 1310 Annunciation, Lippo and Martini, Florence Italy, 1333 Palazzo Pubblico, Siens, Italy, 1288-1309 Anastasis, Istanbul, Turkey, 1310-1320 Crucifixion, Daphni, Greece, 1090-1100
