Guess what Kiddos? We've finished our tour! I know it was awesome and you're silence says it all. Thanks for watching this amazing presentation....aren't I humble? Leonardo da Vinci lived through 1452 to 1519. While a new method of painting called "Perspective" was being struggled with by most artists, Leonardo made it his specialty. His paintings include some of the most widely works of art we know today. The next 6 paintings are some of his best work. Mona Lisa 1505 The Mona Lisa is one of the world's most widely recognized paintings. The model in this painting is believed to be Lisa Gherardini. The artist for this image is Leonardo da Vinci. The Last Supper 1498 This painting was done for the Duke of Milan, named Ludovico Sforza. The painting is in the dining hall of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy. The scene is of Jesus and his Disciples the night before Jesus' crucifixion The Virgin of the Rocks 1486 This painting is of the Madonna and Baby Jesus with Baby John the Baptist. The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne 1508 This painting is of St. Anne, her daughter the Virgin Mary, and little baby Jesus. Baby Jesus is shown holding a lamb to be sacrificed symbolizing his passion as Mary tries to hold him back Madonna Litta 1480 This painting is of the Madonna nursing Baby Jesus. St. John the Baptist 1516 This is believed to be Leonardo da Vinci's last painting. It is of John the Baptist (kind of obvious with the title). He holds a cross in his left hand and points toward heaven in his right hand. David 1504 The David stands at 17" tall. It is a male nude representing the Bible hero David, who did many great things in the Bible. The Creation of Adam 1511 The Creation of Adam is on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It is one of the worlds most famous artworks. The Last Judgement 1541 The Last Judgement is one of the many paintings by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City. This piece took 5 years to complete. Moses 1515 The Moses sculpture has taken its place in the church of San Pietro in Vincoli in Rome. It is of Moses from the Bible with horns on his head. Crucifixion of St. Peter 1546 The Entombment 1500 This is an unfinished painting showing Christ being carried to the tomb. The painting is probably depicting St. John the Evangelist on the left, and Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathae. Although we have a general idea of who the figures may be, no one knows for sure who these people are. The Crucifixion of St. Peter is housed in Cappella Paolina, Vatican Palace in Rome. The painting shows Peter being crucified upside down, refusing to be crucified like Jesus. The School of Athens 1511 Sistine Madonna 1513 The Transfiguration 1520 Disputation of the Holy Sacrament 1510 Galatea 1512 Resurrection of Christ 1502 This piece rests within the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. This is the second painting done in the Stanza della Senatura, the first room to be decorated. Also called La Madonna Di San Sisto, this painting is the last of Raphael's Madonnas. It is one of the central pieces in the Gemaldegaleri Alte Meister. This is considered Raphael's last painting. Raphael left it unfinished and it is believed to be completed by his apprentice, Giulio Romano, after Raphael's death in 1520. This painting is placed in the Pinaoteca Vaticana of the Vatican Museum in the Vatican City. This painting depicts Heaven and Earth, with Christ surrounded by the Virgin Mary, John the Baptist, and a bunch of other people from the Bible like Adam, Moses, and Jacob. God the Father sits above Jesus, releasing the golden light of Heaven This painting was done for a banker named Agostino Chigi, one of the richest men at that time. This painting helped inspire the "Stanze per la giostra" Also called The Kinnaird Resurrection (after a form owner of the painting), The REsurrection of Christ is one of the first preserved works by Raphael. Judith and Holofernes 1460 This piece was created by Donatello at the end of his artistic career. It shows an Assyrian general named Holofernes being assassinated by Judith Magdalene Penitent 1455 The Magdalene Penitent is a wooden sculpture that Donatello did when he over sixty years old. It was most likely done for the Baptistry of Florence. It now stands proudly in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo in Florence Italy. Bacchua and Ariadne 1523 This painting by Titian is one of a series done for Duke of Ferrara during his time. The job was originally for Raphael, but he died, so the job was handed over to Titian. Diana and Actaeon 1559 Diana and Actaeon is considered one of Titian's greatest paintings. It depicts the goddess Diana meeting Actaeon for the first time. This probably isn't a good first impression. Assumption of the Virgin 1518 This painting by Titian shows Mary rising to heaven before her body decays. It is a symbol of her passing into heaven and to eternal life. It is said that Jesus himself raised Mary to heaven. Man with a Glove 1523 This painting is of a rich man (which can be assumed from the gentlemanly glove and the gold ring on his right hand) who is just staring to the left for some reason. The Feast of the Gods 1514 This painting was initially done by a guy named Giovanni Bellini, but Titian made some pretty sweet additions to it. Alright Kids, this is my Renaissance Museum Tour. It's pretty awesome so enjoy it.
