Here, Donatello’s Madonna of the Clouds and Luca della Robbia’s Virgin and child with lilies face one another, competing for museum-goers’ attention from alternate sides of the narrow gallery. Both pieces indulge ingenious techniques, original at the time of conception, to create a completely new visual experience of a very traditional biblical scene, the Madonna with her child, Jesus Christ. This paper will employ close visual analysis of two 15th-century Renaissance reliefs from Florence depicting the Virgin Mary and Jesus Chris in order to show how these artists used innovative
The narrative of art that Lorenzo Ghiberti tells in “The Second Commentary” is how the Christian faith was victorious in the time of Emperor Constaine and Pope Sylvester (152). But the decline, began when everyone was ordered to make any statue and or picture in the color white (153). This, in Ghiberti’s opinion ended the art and teachings of sculpture and art.

It is when Cimabue, one of the greatest painters from Florence took a young boy under his wing by the name of Gitto.

The Renaissance was felt all across Italy, and particularly in the city of Milan. Through various pieces of sculpture, architecture, and paintings, it is possible to recognize the spread of the Renaissance style in Milan and identify the influence of traditional Florentine pieces on Milanese Renaissance creations as well as investigate the factors that cause them to differ.

Comparative Art Research Analysis One of the most widely sought Christian Art themes during the Renaissance era was that of the Eucharist, or Last Supper, where Jesus Christ is sitting with his twelve disciples before he is crucified. Probably the most widely known painting was that of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper. Da Vinci paints the story of the Last Supper at the moment when Christ reveals to his disciples that one of them will betray him, capturing the emotions and reaction of each disciple, which had not been done before.

During certain periods of Michelangelo’s life, he adopted the genre of gift drawings, also known as presentation drawings. One can say that he adopted the genre because there is evidence from before the end of the fifteenth century that gift drawings were made by various artists for reasons ranging from diplomatic gestures to intimate expressions of gratitude. Nonetheless, Michelangelo’s gift drawings are distinct. This is the case because his drawings are clearly drawn with deliberate direction, meticulousness, and passion. There are three specific periods during Michelangelo’s life where he conceived and created such drawings: in the 1520s, in the early 1530s, and a brief moment in the 1540s- none of which coincide with periods of leisure.

One cathedral in Malta houses one of the most famous paintings of all time. It is the St. John’s Cathedral at Valletta and the painting was done by one Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio in 1608 as payment to the Pope for becoming a knight in Malta after being exiled from Rome (Stone 161). Surprisingly, it hangs on the oratory wall, the same spot where knighting and defrocking of the artist took place. No other work of art has ever had a more profound effect on me than the masterpiece, ‘The Beheading of John the Baptist’. Born in 1571 in Northern Italy, Caravaggio’s life was not devoid of controversy.
