In return the Bacci family was able to use the grounds for family burials. Bicci de Lorenzo was first commissioned to paint the frescoes. He became ill and died and the job was taken over by Piero della Francesca who finished the frescoes in 1466. The Legend of the True Cross is also part of the Golden Legend. The Cross, on which Christ was crucified and died, became for Christians the object of a special respect and worship, not only as a remembrance of His sufferings and death, but also as a symbol of His sacrifice.
As a realist painter, he only painted objects that he saw which “produced in him the ability to paint his subjects in such a way that they seem to be alive” (Velazquezgallery). Not only that, he had something that other artists did not have -determination, willpower and fortitude. Velazquez’s skills, talent, and paintings led him to be known as Spain’s greatest baroque artist. Born in Seville, Velazquez’s parents were of inferior nobility. Once he turned twelve years of age, he began an apprenticeship which lasted five years.
Leonardo used everything he learned from nature and science to paint. He used shadowing effects to make these painting look solid and life like Leonardo was primarily as a painter. Leonardo Da Vinci is renowned for his artistic talent, having completed two of the most well know pieces of art recognized today. Mona Lisa is the most famous and most parodied portrait. The Mona Lisa is a portrait of a woman who is wearing a dress and a heavy cloak made out of a velvety material.
He was good friends with Van Gogh and he painted with other great artists such as Cezanne and Pissarro. His art was also extremely influenced by Gauguin’s trip to Tahiti. Gauguin was very interested in painting the church and the cycle of life whilst using pure colors with thick black outlines. A perfect example of this is his painting is called “The Yellow Christ” This painting was designed as to be something new. It isn’t just about the form nor the color instead each are of equal importance.
What is your opinion of this most famous painting? My grandmother has a copy of this picture that actually lights up when you plug it into the wall. I love the picture but it is very confusing about who the person is to the right of Jesus. I have said for years that it looks like a
He is probably most remembered for painting the ceiling at the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It has been called greatest works in the history of art. I feel that it is Michelangelo Buonarotti’s greatest achievement considering, that he also sculpted the Pieta and the David. I have never seen the Sistine Chapel in person but I think that it would be an incredible sight to behold. I also think that it is one of the greatest accomplishments in the Renaissance era and it is also a testament to the greatness of its creator, Michelangelo.
Although two image’s messages are same, but they are painting in different materials. Fig.1 is oiling on the canvas and Fig.2 is oiling on the wood. These painting contain hundred of it around this world in different country. It becomes very popular because God created the world with love, because of this love made humans, but man has sinned, and the Lord god formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the spirit, he became a living soul.

At the same time the story of his life is fascinating in its own right. Langdon attempts to bring him and his environment to life, while also trying to restrict herself to the ascertainable facts. She chooses to construct a narrative, taking a chronological approach to Caravaggio’s life and works, and relating the context of the times and events in his life to his art. Athanassoglou-Kallmyer chooses to write about Cézanne because she feels that as an extremely influential artist, certain aspects of his art have been neglected, ‘the regionalist dimension, so instrumental in fully understanding Cézanne’s enterprise, has been ignored or inadequately explored so far’.  Athanassoglou-Kallmyer’s Cézanne and Provence: The Painter in His Culture, also takes a biographical approach to Cézanne’s life and works, although the narrative element is far less clear cut.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519) is one of the most intriguing personalities in the history of Western art. Trained in Florence as a painter and sculptor in the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio (1435–1488), Leonardo is also celebrated for his scientific contributions. Leonardo's curiosity and insatiable hunger for knowledge never left him. He was constantly observing, experimenting, and inventing, and drawing was, for him, a tool for recording his investigation of nature. Although completed works by Leonardo are few, he left a large body of drawings (almost 2,500) that record his ideas, most still gathered into notebooks.
He finally decided to become an artist. He was one of the famous artists who painted to express feelings. His most famous early painting was called The Potato Eaters which was done with use of dark colors to represent how the peasants were feeling sad. Then he moved to pairs in 1866 to learn the new style of painting called Impressionism from the new painters. He started using bright colors during that time and his art was influenced by painters too.
