    Presentation Transcript
    1. The Renaissance

    2. Medieval Art • Highly influenced by religion • Most artists came from monasteries • Almost all major art was commissioned by the church • Artists painted in a way that emphasized religious images and symbolism rather than realism.

    3. Medieval Art • Painters paid little attention to making humans and animals look lifelike or creating natural looking landscapes • Images often looked flat • Human figures appeared stiff and disproportionate

    4. Renaissance Techniques - Roman art had been very realistic, and Renaissance painters developed new techniques for representing both humans and landscapes in realistic ways. • Perspective: artistic technique used to give drawings and paintings a three-dimensional effect • Shading: used to make objects look round and real • Painters and sculptors studied human anatomy and drew from live models • This allowed them portray the human body more accurately than medieval artists had done

    5. How is this Renaissance painting different? • The figures are more realistic and the human body is accurately depicted and it has perspective.

    6. Why was Renaissance Art revolutionary? • The ideas of humanism, realism, and classicism are all reflected • Humanists focused on human potential and achievements • Artworks glorify the human body and reflect classical influence. • Use of perspective (3-D) • New emphasis on individuals that reveal their subject’s personality
