Giotto di Bondone
Ognissanti Madonna
Originally painted in 1310 for the
Ognissanti Museum
and now presented in the


in Florence alongside other artists of the time
Very difficult to determine actual date of birth; there's a ten-year difference between estimates
Born near Florence, Italy in the Proto-Renaissance
Facts about Giotto are stated with uncertainty due to lack of accurate documentation
Giotto (1266/67-1337)
Included the attempt to reincorporate Greco-Roman art techniques of focusing on humanity and drawing it in the most realistic way.
Remained largely religious
by Polina Leger
Works Cited
Giotto was considered the forerunner to the Italian Renaissance art style
One time Giotto drew a fly so realistically, that his teacher, Cimabue attempted to swat it away multiple times
Very characteristic of art style of the time, incorporated Medieval and Gothic techniques (Madonna painting) while drawing from naturalistic ideas.
Statue of Giotto in Florence, Italy
The Lamentation
Created in 1305 in the Arena or Scrovegni Chapel in Padua as part of a fresco cycle
Fresco art style- Paint applied to wet plaster; popularized by Renaissance artists
Depicts deep mourning of Jesus' death
Painting exemplary of Giotto's work: 3-dimensional, realistic, and emotional
The Last Judgment
Covers the the entire west wall of the Arena Chapel
Shows the Last Judgment or a religious idea in which God separates the good and the bad into heaven and hell
On the bottom, in the middle Giotto showed what seems like Enrico Scrovegni presenting a model of the chapel to Mary
Dante Alighieri
Simple yet one of the better depictions of the poet
Franciscan Allegories
Historians not entirely sure painted by Giotto-widely disputed
Elaborate and intricate
Very realistic and advanced for time
If true-would have been painted when he was very young
Giotto once said...
"Every painting is a voyage into a sacred harbour"
