Many individuals were gifted with artistic skill and creativity. I will talk about how the Mediterranean influenced the Northern Artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Peter Paul Rubens, Simon Vouet and Anthony van Dyck. I will pick one famous piece of each and explain how they used Baroque or Italian features. Albrecht Dürer was born May 21, 1471 in the Franconian city of Nuremberg, one of the artistic and commercial centers in Europe during the 15th and 16th centuries. He was a painter, draftsman and writer but his greatest artistic impact was in the medium of printmaking.
Quattrocento also known as the Italian Renaissance was a pivotal time for individuals in the art world. Many artist were discovered and are still considered famous today. These pioneer artist displayed a presence of scientific, cultural and economics through christianity putting forth techniques and ideas that are still used currently.The most renowned 15th century frescoes would be The Sistine Chapel. It is a perfect example of linear perspective in Perugino's Christ Delivering the Keys of the Kingdom to Peter. Some of the most important collection of Renaissance painting would be that of Federico da Montefeltro who helped Urbino flourish in art and culture and commissioned perhaps the largest library in Italy with the paintings in Monefelto's court displaying the first theoretical treatise on perspective.
St. Francis has influence the artwork of Giotto, the best-known naturalistic painter of his period. Many times Francis celebrated the action of divine grace in his life, which is the essential and beautiful of true sacrament. He feared that the pursuit of any sort of wealth would divert one from fulfilling the gospels ("Christmas Crib"). In the miracle of the crib at Greccio shows a mass celebrated the remembering of the birth of the Savior. Francis seems to be preaching at this Mass and his words were loving.
Whether he was using collage techniques, fusing, clippings from a magazine or a stroke of a brush he created powerful art that will be in minds forever. His visual recollections of the south drawn from real-life memories and stories are anything but usual. His painting “The Family” (1941) demonstrates Bearden’s love for the Cubist style and through this he addresses family’s complex relationships and rituals that were able to tie into my own real-life experiences. Romare Bearden demonstrates that you can take something simple and turn it into something beautiful and meaningful, and that is something he will always be remembered for. The painting, “The Family” can be easily be defined as a
As for his painting career, there is only a few paintings he is fully credited for or recognized as his work. In his paintings, he has had help and collaborated with his pupils that passed as apprentices in his workshop. A couple of the most famous of his pupils include Leonardo Da Vinci and Lorenzo di Credi. Whenever Verrocchio didn’t finish something, he would leave it to someone else to put some finishing touches. He left amazing art behind soon died of an unknown cause in 1488.
Reputable artists, like Michelangelo, were sufficiently trusted and admired to allow more freedom of expression. Michelangelo was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City in 1508. These frescoes reflect Christian beliefs because they are situated in the Vatican City, the heart of Catholicism, and were commissioned by the Pope, the head of the Roman church. In addition, Michelangelo himself was a devout Christian however he was also a devotee of Plato (an ancient Greek philosopher) and in the Sistine Chapel we see a merging of both classical and Christian values. For Michelangelo these apparently contrasting values were not in conflict and he was given the freedom by Julius
Artists such as Michelangelo, who received generous commissions from Pope Julius II, created such splendid, ethereal, and religious works as David and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel as a way to impress and captivate followers of the Catholic Church (and, undoubtedly, as a means to intimidate followers of the Protestant Reformation). At the same time, there was a sense of discovery in the Renaissance, and a newfound love of the classical writings of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The humanist program of study could typically only be afforded by aristocrats and the rising merchant class, and, as these people sought to boast of their might through the commission of art (the Medicis of Florence are well-known for this clever tactic), we have works such as School of Athens by Raphael, which depicts a beautiful blend of Christian subject and classical ideals. In the late 1800s, however, there was a sense of disillusionment with the increasingly industrialized world. Whilst Renaissance painters sought to create a "window into the world", artists of the late 19th century began to attempt to have their viewers
He was first educated at Manhatten’s High School of Music and Art, then later graduated in 1951 from the Cooper Union of Advancement and Art. For his outstanding academic accomplishments he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, that allowed him to go abroad and study art and design in Italy. In Italy he studied under Giorgio Morandi at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. Glaser grew a lot as an artist in the time he spend under the rigorous tutelage of Morandi, and what he learned there has influenced much of his work. The most important lession he learn was that “history is not an enemy, and that modernism is not the only resourse for a designer.” The influence of history, and using the lessons you learn from it, is very evident in Glaser’s work.
The defining change of the Renaissance was humanism, a literary movement that began in Italy during the fourteenth century. Humanism was a distinct movement because it broke from the medieval tradition of having pious religious motivation for creating art or works of literature. Giovanni Pico determined himself to gather up all the ideologies concerning ancient and medieval, pagan and Christian, Muslim and Jewish philosophies and creating a project will aim to secure human happiness. Pico’s Oration on the Dignity of Man is considered as a definitive statement of Renaissance ideals because it
But it was the virtuoso handling of the medium on panel by van Eyck and Rogier van der Weyden that represented a turning point in its eventual adoption as the major painting medium in Europe in the 16th Century. By then van Eyck had been credited by some to be the first to engage in this medium; although he had been incorrectly credited with the "invention" of oil painting it was his experimentations and development that was not in dispute, providing much inspiration for other artists in Northern Europe and Italy. He was to pass his knowledge to few, yet many were to study his work and replicate the beauty, character, luminosity and longevity of his paintings. Rogier van der Weyden was also a Flemish painter whom we can attribute his use of oil paint and the advancement of his technical abilities as major artistic achievements of the Renaissance period. Rogier was distinguished by his dynamic compositions stressing human acts and drama.
