Renaissance Art By: Carly Cassady Block: 6
The renaissance was a period of great creativity and intellectual activity, during which artists broke away from the restrictions of Byzantine art. Throughout the 15th century, artists studied the natural world in order to perfect their understanding of such subjects as anatomy and perspective. During this period there was a related advancement of gothic art centered in Germany and the Netherlands, known as the northern renaissance.Byzantine art gothic artnorthern renaissance
During the Renaissance, artists were no longer regarded as mere artisans, as they had been in the medieval past, but for the first time were seen as independent personalities. They found new solutions to formal and visual problems, and many of them were also devoted to scientific experimentation. Mathematical or linear perspective was developed. As a result, the painted surface was regarded as a window on the natural world, and it became the task of painters to portray this world in their art. Artists studied the effect of light out-of-doors and how the eye perceives the diverse elements in nature.perspective
They also developed aerial perspective. Northern painters were as advanced in landscape painting and contributed to the innovations of their southern contemporaries by introducing oil paint as a new medium.oil paint The Renaissance of the arts helped with the development of humanism. The use of classical Latin was revived and often favored at this time. The Renaissance was also a period of avid exploration, which resulted in the discovery and eventual colonization of North and South America.

My Top Ten 10) I really liked Merry-go-round with Elephant by Antoine Caron because my favorite ride when I was little was the Merry-go-round and one of my favorite animals are elephants so the picture really caught my attention just by the name. 9) I also like Antigua Altar by Juan de Juni because of how lovely the altar was. It was done so exquisitely and I love all the colors and how big the altar appears to be. 8) Charity by Cecchino del Salviati is another favorite. It shows so much expression but is still calm with the kids. Also very graceful and loving. 7) Ceres and Stelio by Adam Elsheimer. I love how the background is so gloomy but the message and the people are so warm. It looks like they are praying and they just look so happy despise the darkness.
Top Ten Continued… 6) The Madonna with Canon van de Paele by Jan van Eyck. This painting has such great positioning of the people and the beautiful colors. Looks like it shows an average afternoon of life. 5) St Matthew by Cimabue. I love the red church because it looks like a ten year old drew it but is no nicely done that its unreal. Looks very welcoming and friendly and captures my attention very well. 4) St Paul by Masaccio shows a great portrait. It shows pride and honor and reminds me of the statue of liberty because of holding the bible and sword in hands with long lost look of hope in his eyes. 3) Abraham by Filippino Lippi is such intricate work. The painting is so nicely done and beautiful that it makes you wonder how he really did that.
Top Ten Continued… 2) Titian- Assumption of the Virgin- has such a look of despair yet holds so much beauty. Very captivating. 1) The Abyss of Hell by Botticelli is like a tornado which would send you into an abyss and the idea is just awesome. Very cool outcome and also looks like a wine glass and they drank a lot of wine which caused some deaths which is some foreshadowing.
