Ducal Identity in the Chroniques de Hainaut Although presentation miniatures have a long history in illuminated manuscripts, the presentation miniature of the Chroniques de Hainaut to Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy, achieves the height of this genre.

This attention spills over into the composition and iconography, using a system of devices, mottos, and heraldry to establish Philip the Good’s identity and political strategies. I will argue that the Duke establishes his identity as separate from his predecessors through heraldry, and positions his son, Charles the Bold, as the rightful heir to

Taken from a Bible story in the New Testament, Matthew 9:9, the scene depicts the scripture that reads, “"And when Jesus passed on from thence, he saw a man sitting in the custom house, named Matthew; and he said to him: Follow me. And he arose up and followed
The first time he traveled to Italy was in the late 16th century while the second time he traveled was in the early 17th century. Inigo Jones’ second visit to Italy he had plenty of liberty to practice Italian art and architecture. He used Palladio’s treatise, Quattro libri dell’architettura, visiting as many as possible of the buildings illustrated in it and conning them over, line by line, against Palladio’s woodcuts. Palladio had great importance to him and he greatly inspired many of his work. Although Palladio’s work was what Jones studied and implemented in his work what interested Jones was the antique and all that Vitruvius had to say about architecture.

Both frescos are the most representative pieces of Adam and Eve, but Masaccio’s touches of working on shadow, composition, expressions, color and symbols made his Expulsion from the Garden of Eden more unique at that time. Masaccio also was a sculptor, so his vision of seeing shadow was definitely benefited from the observation of sculptures. According to The Brancacci Chapel and Masolino, Masaccio, and Filippino Lipp, Austen Henry Layard wrote, “Masaccio was born in the castellated town of S.
