ARTH 1510 Early Renaissance Art Nov. 30/11
Pisano-3 dimensional and has a sense of being separated from flat background.
Decorative sense. Figures appear completely natural
Cimabue-virgin and child enthroned-they’re following models. The lights and darks give
it depth. Different from bizantine because the artist gives them a life like contemporary
setting. He gives her an architectural setting. This is the first of it type. Viewer is
simultaneously looking down and straight on
Giotto di Bondone-madonna enthroned-he is more rational and becomes more real.
Gown is done through shading. But he is keeping the hierarchy of size but the effect of
the shading and the rationalizing is clear
Giotto di Bondone-arena chapel-
Giotto di Bondone-lamentation-distinguishes one body from another
Giotto di Bondone-out of time. Looks more medieval. He tries to make his images so
that there is one thing that we are focusing on
Duccio di Buoninsegna-things are coming down to the individual and if the individual is
staying with tradition or thinking outside the box. Duccio is staying with tradition
Betrayal of jesus-uses rational landscape setting that we can understand in any day
Annunciation-mary is treated like a queen
Peaceful city-ambrosia lorenzeti-propaganda purposes. A picture of the public square.
He is meant to produce good and bad between governments. He is showing off an
increase in linear perspective. Also divides city from countryside. Shows body in motion
and surroundings
Peaceful country-allegory of good government. First landscape in western art since
roman landscapes. Even though its the country, it is still governed by the law and order
of cienna and the wrongdoers will be punished.
Allegory of bad government-you have death and destruction
