  • Masaccio Innovator Of Perspective And Illusion - 581 words
    Masaccio - Innovator of Perspective and Illusion Masaccio: Innovator of Perspective and Illusion Considered the greatest Florentine painter of the early 1400s, Masaccio is one of the most important figures of Western Art. Tommaso di ser Giovanni Cassai di Simon Guidi was born in 1401 and nicknamed Masaccio Careless Tom because of his attitude. He was apathetic to things like personal appearance and worldly materials, and was thus careless with his possessions. As a child, he concentrated more on his art instead of himself and what others thought about him. He moved from Castel S. Giovanni di Altura to Florence in 1417 to become a pupil of Masolino di Panicale. There, he helped upon innovatio ...

  • The Holy Trinity By Masaccio - 942 words
    The Holy Trinity by Masaccio The Holy Trinity by Masaccio was done approximately 1428. It is a superb example of Masaccio's use of space and perspective.

    Comparing a painting by Fra Filippo Lippi and Dante Gabriel Rossetti Comparing a painting by Fra Filippo Lippi and Dante Gabriel Rossetti The two pictures are Rosettis Ecce Ancilla Domini and Lippis Annunciation. Both of the artists were influenced by their age. Lippi lived in Italy between 1406 and 1469 and Rosetti from 1828 to 1882. Lippis background of Italian Renaissance determined his style to a large extent.

  • In The Following Essay I Shall Compare And Contrast Paintings From The Medieval And Renaissance Period - 505 words
    In the following essay I shall compare and contrast paintings from the medieval and renaissance period. Medieval paintings were very realistic and precise. The king in the painting is in the middle, and anything painted in the middle is the center of attraction or the important object in the painting. To prove this theory, I looked at the painting and the first thing that caught my eye is the king. The human body is not too detailed but the actions they are doing or intend to do are very clear. The painter created visual space in this painting in a very witty way; he painted pillars and ceiling ornaments, which is an indication of height and space. I think it is a very successful method beca ...
