Rachel Garcia November 21, 2010 Art 11 Comparison and Analysis of: Raphael’s the Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints and The Buddha Seated in Meditation. The title of the painting that I choose for this assignment is entitled The Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints. This is a painting by the Italian High Renaissance artist Rafael, circa 1504. The Madonna And Child is an alter piece of an oil painting that also uses gold on wood. The Madonna and Child is a piece that uses many techniques used during the Renaissance period such as one point perspective, balance, use of geometric design, and religious themes.
Ognissanti Madonna In the early years of the Italian Renaissance no other artist made a bigger impact then Giotto Di Bondone (c. 1267–January 8, 1337). Giotto was a painter and architect from Florence Italy. He is often credited of being the father of the Renaissance. The frescoes in the Arena Chapel, Padua are famously accredited to Giotto. One of his other well know paintings is Madonna Enthroned, also known as the Ognissanti Madonna ( c. 1310 ).
I Introduction The birth of Christ, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, the Pieta; religious art has always been an important tradition in the West. This paper examines an altarpiece by Raphael, painted around 1504 (16.30 ab), first describing it briefly then considering it in more detail. II Description The first thing we notice is that the painting is in two pieces: the main subject, Mary and the Child, are in the center of the lower portion, which is a square. Above it is a semicircle with other figures in it. A heavy horizontal wooden bar, which is part of the structure that frames the entire work, divides the two.
For me to show that I am listening actively to the child I should stop what I am doing and get down to their eye level and make eye contact. This ensures the child that I'm actively listening. I should also focus on what they are saying especially if they have a difficult time trying to express themselves and aid them. By responding to the child, they acknowledge that I have been listening. I can reflect on what they said or ask them open questions to find out more information.
Ghent Altarpiece The Ghent Altarpiece is considered by scholars to be one of the most ambitious and complex paintings of the 15th century. Its detailed panels convey its sacred matter with such realism that art historians mark it as the start of the Northern Renaissance. The altarpiece, also known as the “Adoration of the Lamb”, was begun in 1425. The exterior frame of the altarpiece indicates it was started by painter Hubert van Eyck who died before he could finish, and then completed by his brother Jan van Eyck in 1432. The painting was then acquired by a wealthy patron Jodocus Vijd for placement in the Church of Saint John, Ghent, Belgium.
The Entombment is a glue-size painting on linen attributed to the Early Netherlandish painter Dieric Bouts. It shows a scene from the biblical entombment of Christ, and was probably completed between 1440 and 1455 as a wing panel for a large hinged polyptych altarpiece. The now-lost altarpiece is thought to have contained a central crucifixion scene flanked by four wing panel works half its height – two on either side – depicting scenes from the life of Christ. The smaller panels would have been paired in a format similar to Bouts' 1464–67 Altar of the Holy Sacrament. The larger work was probably commissioned for export to Italy, possibly to a Venetian patron whose identity is lost.
George Handel perished on April 14, 1759, in London, England. George Handel was a composer of operas, of oratorios, and of instrumentals. His 1741 exertion, Messiah, is the most famous oratorio. At an early age, Handel yearned to study music, but his parents objected, doubtful that music was a genuine source of revenue.

Andrea del Verrocchio's art embodied the style of the Renaissance because he portrayed realism and humanism, made three-dimensional paintings and sculptures using perspective and other skills. Verrocchio was born as Andrea di Michele di Francesco de’ Cioni on 1435 in Florence, Italy. Before being a painter and a sculptor, he was a goldsmith and took the name from his master he was studying under, Giuliano Verrocchio. It is indicated that he was also trained under Fra Filippo Lippi as a painter. As for his painting career, there is only a few paintings he is fully credited for or recognized as his work.
Thus, I think Mona Lisa is the most suitable artwork for me to mediate different meanings produced since the Renaissance until the postmodern world. The Renaissance’s painter Leonardo Da Vinci finished the portrait in between 1503-1504. There are multiple hypotheses about why the portrait was created: some of them says that it is a self- portrait of the painter by noting that the eyes, nose- tip and mouth of Mona Lisa actually line up with a known self portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci. Other claims that the sitter and the painter had a special rapport. Thus, the sitter appeared to look at the viewer (actually the painter) straight in the eye with ease.
