Transcript of The Miracle of St Mark Freeing the Slave

The Miracle of St Mark Freeing the Slave
Tintoretto
Paradise
The "Paradise" painting is balanced by symmetry. At the top it is very obvious that symmetry exists in this painting because of the two men in red clothing and the angels on either side. When looking at the painting, I see a curve to the painting but that is the use of aerial perspective in this piece of artwork.
Portrait of Tintoretto
This painting portrays individualism because it is focusing on Tintoretto himself. The close-up of his face depicts a sense of realism because it does have detail. The wrinkles in the forehead and under the eyes allow for you to see this.
This painting uses balance by the man in the air and the man in the white on the ground. The landscape in the background gives the painting a three-dimensional look, with the use of aerial perspective.
In keeping with the drama of the action is the tight construction of the painting, the dramatic fore-shortening of the forms and sudden strong contrast of light and shade.
This was his first of many artworks done for the Scuola Grande di San Marco.
The
Paradise
was damaged by a fire that took place in
the Palazzo Ducale
and Tintoretto and a few of his pupils were assigned to repaint the magnificent mural.
Tintoretto originally painted a portrait of himself when he was younger but it took a few years for his work to develop into something that other artists would recognize. He decided to redo his self-portrait when he was in his seventies.
His real name is Jacopo Comin. Tintoretto was a nickname he was given because of his father. Tintoretto was the eldest of twenty-one children. He was born in Venice in 1518. His father saw his talent and had him study under Titian. Titian saw his potential to be a great scholar and sent him home because he was jealous of his talent as a young child. Tintoretto was one of the greatest painters of the Venetian School and probably the last great painter of the Italian Renaissance. Tintoretto was influenced by Titian and Michelangelo.
