Transcript of Chapter 16, Section 2, The Acceptance of Renaissance Ideas

The Acceptance of Renaissance Ideas Jalliyah Ingram Paolo Uccello Piero della Francesca * In painting, more and more artist turned their attention to creating depth and form to replace the flat two dimensional surfaces that characterized medieval pictures.

* perspective and modeling in light and shade were uses to achieve astonishing realistic appearances.

* In architecture the Gothic style was abandoned by Filippo Brunelleschi and followers in favor of a new architecture style. This style traced its origins back in time to the carefully proportioned, balanced, and elegant buildings of classical times. Innovations in Painting, Sculpture, and Architeccture Donatello * He was one of the Renaissance artist who eagerly accepted new Renaissance ideas.

*He used a technique known as foreshadowing, drawing figures or objects according to the rules of perspective so that they appear to recede or protrude into three dimensional space. * It was up to Francesca to break with tradition and fully embrace the new style. He carried on ideas that started with Giotto and were continued by Masaccio.

*The Baptism of Christ shows how Piero painted figures to appear three dimensional like figures painted by Giotto and Masaccio. * One of the assistants who worked for Ghiberti on the first set of doors for the Baptistry of florence, would go on to become the greatest sculptor of the Early Renaissance.
* He used perspective in sculpture when carving figures that were to be placed above eye level in churches.
* He made upper part of the bodies longer so that when viewed from below, they would seem more naturalistic. Filippo Brunelleschi * He was the artist credited for the discovery of linear perspective. He was also major rival with Ghiberti for the right to design the doors for the baptistry in Florence. He lost and caused him to abandon sculpture for a career in architecture. Designing the Dome of Florence Cathedral * Sixteen years later, the two rivals faced each other again in another competition. This time they were asked to submit their designs for huge dome for the cathedral.
* Brunelleschi plan called for the use of eight Gothic ribs that met at the top of the dome and were joined by horizontal sections around the outside of the dome at its base. Sandro Botticelli * Was born in 1945 and died quietly in Florence some 66 years later.
* It was forgotten for centuries , the artist's painting are now ranked among the most admired of the renaissance period.
