These two works of art have reflected the environments of Rome and Venice. Raphael’s School of Athens is painted in a one point perspective. This causes our focus to appear on the two central figures of the scene, Plato and Aristotle. The architecture in the painting is depicted in a classical roman style; there are high and round arches, which help to create Plato and Aristotle as the focus point. There are also two sculptures
The Annunciation by Fra Angelico is a painting in “tempura style,” which is a method of painting with pigments dispersed in an ointment typically egg yolk mixed with water. The Annunciation was “dated around 1425-1426 with a provenance of Convento de Santo Domingo, Fiesole, 1425/28-1611”(1). Fra Angelico, in The Annunciation, merges “the late Gothic Italian style with the new language of the Renaissance. An example of this is the architecture’s spatial depth, which, while in keeping with Brunelleschi’s recommendation to occupy the center of a square and unadorned stage, nevertheless shows some of the errors present in Angelico’s early works”(1). Written texts, relics, and manuscript illuminations can be used to encourage a belief that the divine
"Prometheus Bound” is an oil painting done on canvas by a Baroque artist, Peter Paul Reubens. The painting which was completed in 1618 though started in 1611 is based on a character, the Titan Prometheus, in one of the Greek myths.

Leonardo da Vinci’s piece, ‘Vitruvian Man’ is believed to demonstrate the ratio. He also used the ratio to illustrate the table and shields in ‘The Last Supper’, the brick wall of ‘The Annunciation’, ‘Salvator Munid’ and many others. Michelangelo was another artist who used the ratio in his master pieces throughout the Sistine Chapel. In ‘The Creation of Adam’ the finger of God touches Adam’s finger right at the Golden Ratio point. Botticelli uses phi in his creation of ‘The Birth of Venus’.
The inscription on the bottom of the painting also suggests Enriquez wants his painting to be revered akin to the original as it states: “Tocada à su Maravilloso Original, el día dos de Julio de 1789” meaning that his painting was sanctified by the original painting in 1789 (The Metropolitan Museum of Art). Additionally, the use of copper adds to the holy iridescence of the painting and Virgin Mary as the way the sunlight reflects on copper gives it a luminescent shine that glows from beneath the paint. The painting is also bordered by a golden frame and has golden details throughout the painting, such as the golden sun rays radiating form Virgin Mary. The Virgin Mary is depicted wearing a golden crown and a robe studded with gold stars and bordered in gold. She is wearing a golden cross pendant and golden bracelets on both her hands.
In the year of 1644 the French artist Claude Lorrain created a painting titled the “Ideal View of Trioli”. The painting that consists of two outstanding mediums; oil and canvas now resides in the New Orleans Museum of Art. The majority of the canvas focuses on the background that consists of a eerily creepy sunset in which the orange and pink colors combine perfectly along with the clouds and the ruins of what looks to be a decrepit roman city atop a rock covered mountain. Furthermore the city’s ruins in the background inhere a rounded building surrounded by tan columns. In addition to the columns that are stationed in the middle of the portrait there is a bridge that crosses a small, elegant waterfall on the left side of the background that ripples down the tan colored mountainside.
Then he began painting his piece of art, while his journey through his Connecticut property, and the white bridge is representation of Horseneck Brook. John Henry Twachtman, born August 4, 1853, Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.—died August 8, 1902, Gloucester, Massachusetts, painter and etcher, one of the first American Impressionists.

When comparing the two art works, Lamentation and the Dying Gaul, there are many similarities and differences. Lamentation is a fresco painting that was painted on the north wall of St. Panteleimon in 1164 AD. St. Panteleimon was a monastery in Nerezi, Macedonia built under the ruling of Alexios Komnenos. Lamentation is a Byzantine art painting that was very stylistic and painterly. The background of this painting is that it represents a non-biblical scene of Mary and her son placed in the foreground.

This triptych was painted by Peter Paul Rubens from 1610-11. (“The Elevation”, N.D) It is a beautiful oil on canvas. The perspective in this case is almost perfected and the artist makes great use of foreshortening with the position of Christ compared to the other figures in the painting. The lighting, while darker and starker than the previously mentioned triptych from the Renaissance period, is more natural and helps to amplify the somber atmosphere of the
Context In this analysis I will be talking about the amazing art work done by Leonardo Da Vinci Cecelia Gallerini from around the 1489–1490. Lady with an ermine shows a variety of techniques that were used in the Renaissance time. First was the use of chiaroscuro; the use of shadow to enhance the three dimensional relief of the figure which made it look realistic and stand out. Second, his use of sfumato; to create fine and very gradual tonal changes, specifically used around the eyes and mouth (a technique used extensively in Mona Lisa. Describe This painting was created on with oil on a 54.8 x 40.3 cm wood panel.
Lastly, the two paintings use perspective, color, and light very similarly. In Death of General Wolfe, the artist, West, clearly and realistically paints the figures in the foreground and in the background in uniforms that would have been common during that time. Similarly, Giotto paints his figures in robes which were common, and what painters usually depicted their figures wearing. They both have knowledge about what it is they are painting and are able to use color to accurately show what may have occurred. The use of light in both of these paintings is very similar.
They introduced palmette and lotus compositions, animal hunts, and such composite beasts as griffins, sphinxes, and sirens.Greek artists quickly assimilated foreign designs and motifs into new portrayals of their own myths and customs, thereby shaping the foundations of Archaic and Ancient Greek art. This noble figure of a youth is one among the earliest separate marble statues from territory, the region around Athens. it 's a kind of sculpture referred to as a kouros, characteristically portrayed nude with the left leg striding forward and hands tight at the aspect.

Italian Renaissance painter Tiziano Vecellio, also known as Titian, created one of his most well-known paintings in the year 1538. This work, Venus of Urbino (Figure 1), is an oil painting that depicts a nude young woman reclining on a couch or bed in the luxurious surroundings of a Renaissance palace. Created for the Duke of Urbino, Guidobaldo II Della Rovere, this work commemorated his wedding to Giuliana Varano that took place in 1534. Titian’s work, based on his master, Giorgione’s Sleeping Venus — completed in 1510 (Figure 2) — places Venus in an indoor setting, which engages her with the viewer, making her sensuality explicit. Titian’s Venus of Urbino is perhaps his most well-known painting because of its ambiguous meaning.
