the beginning of the rich art of the Italian Renaissance between 1450 and 1527 movement was centralized in Rome widely viewed as the greatest explosion of creative genius in history Artists include Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo Da Vinci
developed in the mid to late 15 th Century “Renaissance- style” painting Bellini and Vivarini were credited to bringing about this Venetian style artists were Bellini, Titian, and Giorgione
Pietro Perugino was an Italian painter, active mainly in Perugia. His main work was Christ Delivering the Keys of the Kingdom to St. Peter (1481). He maintained a workshop in Florence, as well as Perugia. Perugino is best known for his altarpieces in the art world today…..
The Basilica di Sant’ Andrea is an Renaissance Church in Mantua, Italy. Commissioned by Ludovico ll Gonzaga, the church was begun in 1462 according to the designs of Alberti. The church is considered to be one of Alberti’s most complete works.
The Lamentation over the Dead Christ is a painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Andrea Mantegna c. 1480. The dating of the piece is debated, but the painting is generally believed to have been finished between 1457 and 1501. The painting portrays the dead Christ on an marble slab; Virgin Mary and St. John weeping over his death. The realism and tragedy of the piece are enhanced by the violent perspective, which dramatizes the figure, stressing the anatomical details particularly Christ’s chest.
Saint James led to Martyrdom was painted sometime between 1453 and 1455. Mantegna’s mastery of di sotto in su perspective and Mantegna’s archaeologically correct details of Roman architecture is readily apparent in his paintings. The perspective scheme exaggerates the apparent height of the composition and scene. The figures of Saints Peter, Paul and Christopher in Mantegna’s earliest frescos in chapels show Mantegna’s absorption of the monumental figure styles of Tuscany.
The Virgin of the Rocks, or sometimes called Madonna of the Rocks, is the usual title used for both of two different paintings with almost identical compositions. The painting was painted around 1483- 1486, or earlier. The work is by Leonardo, and is the earliest of two of Leonardo’s paintings. The painting is a perfect example of Leonardo’s “Sfumato” technique. This technique refers to Leonardo’s fine shading and subtle transitions from light to dark giving his paintings an illusionistic atmosphere.
The Last Supper is currently residing at Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy. Leonardo began work on The Last Supper in 1495 and completed the painting in 1498. The Last Supper portrays the reaction given by each of the apostles when Jesus said one of the apostles would betray Jesus.
Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda or La Joconde, is a 16 th Century portrait painted by Leonardo Da Vinci, finished in the 1519. This painting was painted on a popular panel in Florence. The Mona Lisa is owned by the Government of France, and currently resides in Paris, France. The painting depicts a woman whose facial expression is often described as solemn. The Mona Lisa is perhaps the most iconic piece of artwork in the world.
Tempietto by Bramante was designed in 1510. The Tempietto was one of the most harmonious buildings of the Renaissance. With its rigorous proportions and symmetry of Classical structures, The Tempietto was a dome structure composed of Doric columns.
Michelangelo's David is a masterpiece in Renaissance art and sculpture. It was created during 1501 and 1504. The 17 ft statue portrays the biblical hero David at a moment of intense contemplation. Unlike previous artworks of David, Michelangelo’s David is said to depict David before the battle with Goliath.
Michelangelo’s Moses is yet another one of Renaissance's prominent sculptures. Sculpted around 1513 and 1515, Moses was commissioned in 1505 by Pope Julius II for his tomb. The sculpture depicts the biblical figure Moses with horns atop his head, symbolizing authority in ancient Near Eastern culture.
The Sistine Chapel Ceiling, painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, is one of the most renowned artworks of the High Renaissance. Commissioned by Pope Julius II, The Sistine Chapel Ceiling is painted with various elements, including The Last Judgment also painted by Michelangelo. The ceiling’s central theme of art is nine scenes from the Book of Genesis.
The Creation of Adam, a section of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, was painted by Michelangelo circa 1511. The painting illustrates the Biblical story from the Book of Genesis in which God the Father breathes life into Adam, the first man. Among the panels of the ceiling, The Creation of Adam, was among the last to be completed.
The Tomb of Giuliano de’ Medici, was created between 1526 to 1531, by none other than Michelangelo. Though never finished, the tomb of Giuliano de’ Medici in the Medici Chapel is the only one of Michelangelo’s great architectural- sculptural projects to be realized in a form approaching composition. The details of Night and Day contrast highly with the figure of Medici.
one of the most famous paintings by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael painted between 1510 and 1511 seen as “Raphael's” masterpiece and the perfect embodiment of the classical spirit of the High Renaissance
