1This slide presents the work done by the class 3E about the Venetian Renaissance: With our teacher Maria Chiara Rossi we found some pictures painted by the most important artist of the Renaissance with a particular detail: Oriental influences.In that period, Venice was a city full of life and it had fruitful relationships with the Orient: in fact, prestigious painters inserted exotic elements among their paintings: they were very influenced by this foreign presence.We noticed that in these pictures there were lots of Turkish men, represented with white turbans and dark skin, but also carpets.We want to remark in this way the importance of the relation between Italy and the Oriental states.We hope that you enjoy!!
