Donatello was one of the greatest Florentine sculptor of the Renaissance era, before Michelangelo [1386-1466] and was the most significant unique artist of the 15th century in Italy. Donatello was known for creating lots of sculptures in which some he emphasized the nude in his sculptures. One of Donatello`s famous work was the bronze sculpture “David”. The “David” sculpture, emphasized the ideal figure of nudity capturing natural representation of balance and proportion. Donatello studied the anatomy of the human body in order to understand how to best represent his sculptures; as a noted scientific approach. That approach to his work was consider as “Classical” which influences are easy to see. So, with
The greatest European explorer to ever live was not Christopher Columbus, it was the one and only Bartolomeu Dias. Bartolomeu Dias’s life was full of adventure and hardship. Through numerous amounts of research, Bartolomeu Dias took a gamble and sailed to the southernmost tip of Africa by reaching the Indian Ocean from the Atlantic. He is definitely one of the greatest European explorers to ever live because no other explorer has ever accomplished this achievement before.
Soon after Michelangelo 's move to Rome in 1498, the cardinal Jean Bilhères de Lagraulas, a representative of the French King Charles VIII to the pope, commissioned "Pieta," a sculpture of Mary holding the dead Jesus across her lap[https://www.biography.com/].

In 1527, the citizens of Michelangelo’s native Florence expelled the ruling Medici family and installed a republican government.

This nude sculpture shows a feminine aspect. For example, David stands with the left thigh exposed. The way he holds a sword and the way he leans his weight (contrapposto), all perfectly stand out the character of David. Contrappdosto is an Italian word meaning an asymmetrical arrangement of the human figure where the lines of the arms and shoulders are contrasted in order to balance the hips and legs while standing. In other words, Donatello’s David is very sensual, especially his sexual expression. This sculpture is a mixture of female and male traits; its idea is to describe the realism without mythical and big muscles as was found in the Hellenistic period.
Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452. He was Italian, and wrote right to left. However, even though he was an artist he was very interested in the human body and interested in how it works. First, in 1470 he went to Florence, while he was there he painted a picture of a young woman. The Renaissance was just now beginning and people liked paintings that had a lot of colors. He was 25 years old when he worked by himself.
(March 6th 1475 - February 18th 1564) born in Caprese, Italy Michelangelo was an Italian painter, architect, poet and sculptor. Before his name was known he was just an apprentice to a painter and eventually began studying in sculpture, in the gardens of a wealthy and famous family known as the Medici. He has been remembered as the most famous artist in the time of the Renaissance. Some of his famous works include The Last Judgement (1535-1541), David (1501-1504), and the Pieta (1498-1499). Perhaps the most recognized work of his, is located on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, which took about 4 years to paint. He stood out from other artists because of his ability to make sculptures so realistic, to the point where it looked like a living
Giovanni da Verrazzano was born in 1485 in Greve in Chianti, Italy. He was italian. He then died in 1528 in Guadeloupe because of cannibalism.
He was born in 1386 and died at the age of 80 in 1466. Donatello's full name is Donato Di Niccolo Bardi. He was mostly a sculptor, building such art as the "St. George Killing the Dragon and the life size statue of St. Louis, using materials including wood, marble, and bronze. He was interested in the ideas of humanism and nature. Donatello's paintings had a lot of vibrant colors and unusual view points and strangely twisted figures.
Tiziano Vecellio, known as Titian was an extraordinary artist who made many works of art during his long life. According to the traditional date of birth, Titian was born in 1477, but many critics today say his birth date is around 1488/90. Titian was born in Pieve di Cadore, Italy to his parents Gregorio di Conte dei Vecelli, and Gregorio’s wife, Lucia, who were neither rich or poor. His early education included a bit of reading and writing, but he was not literary. When Titian was nine years old he went to Venice with his brother, Francesco, and lived there with his uncle and became Sebastiano Zuccato’s apprentice. Not long after Titian moved to Venice he went to Giovanni Bellini’s workshop. Giovanni Bellini was Titian’s true teacher, and inspired Titian as well. Titian was also inspired by Giorgione of Castelfranco, a follower of Giovanni Bellini, who Titian worked with early on in his career. Titian and Giorgione worked together on the frescoes of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi in 1508. Also, Titian got inspiration from artists Raphael and Michelangelo, and was driven by
Andrea di Bartolo di Simone was born in Castagno, Italy, near Florence, in around 1419. He is commonly referred to using his pseudonym, Andrea del Castagno. Not much is known about his difficult early years of life due to the lack of records. Although, it is said he had an abusive father. It is known that Andrea moved to Corella during a war between Florence and Milan, but moved back afterward. By 1440, he was well-known enough to be commissioned for his art. One of his first works was multiple frescoes, painted on the Palazzo del Podestà, showing traitors being hung by their heels after the Battle of Anghiari. For that artwork, he was given the nickname of “Little Andrea of the Hanged Men”. By 1442, Andrea was in Venice and painting frescoes in the San Tarasio chapel with
I think the author’s argument is that Donatello show his art work in his museum influence of Greek art in which has Roman copies with it. Then the essay was addresses to Humanist sources, Roman, and Greek. In Page 845 “The antiquities from Poggio’s collection…. can no longer be traced, and take form, like so many other early collections, only in the scholarly imagination”. This tell me that the many of item are no longer to be track but made in their mind. Other evidence that I think is that “ Ciriaco composed both “Nivea Paros” ad the epitaph……could have supplied drawings or three- dimensional models any time……had access to all the wax models and cast bronze elements that Donatello had created by that time.”( page 853) This mean that Ciriaco
Viewing themselves as heirs to Ancient Rome, the Florentines spearheaded the Humanist movement, believing that they were the ideal city state to inherit Rome’s prestige. They not only wanted to be like Rome, they wanted to become Rome, a centre for the arts as well as politics. This interest in the Greco-Roman style of art is what led to the advancement in sculptural technique. Additionally, there was a surge in patriotism due to the end of the plague and a break in the war against Milan. In celebration, the Florentines decided to beautify the city, to display their growing power. Another reason for decorating Florence however, was so that the citizens could show their solidarity towards their community and give back to city which they so dearly loved. Such civic values not only inspired the citizens, but also the sculptors, especially Donatello, with his creation of David. He stood for Florence and her liberty. For triumph over tyranny. However, the fight was not over yet, as Florence would have to face off against tyranny once again in the next
