A new movement called humanism characterized this era and was evidenced in art, music, and literature. Humanism is the emergence of the individualism of man, as well as his dignity and juxtaposition with God. It explored the divine nature of man and his actions.

Giovanni Antonio Canal an 18th century Italian artist better known as Canaletto gives us the other cityscape. Canaletto’s oil painting of the Rialto Bridge and the hustle and bustle of the people of Venice was created in 1730 during the Italian transition from Rococo to Neoclassicism. Rococo was primarily in Northern Europe: France and Germany, however Canaletto was painting in Southern Europe, Italy.

Ingres’ Raphael and La Fornarina is a Romanticism painting. The medium is oil on canvas. Ingres’ painting came in on the emerging scene of Romanticism in the early Nineteenth Century.

Signac decided to become a painter after he paid a visit to Monet’s art gallery. When Signac decided to become a painter, he sailed around the coast of Europe and painted all of the landscapes he encountered. He also painted a series of watercolor cities in France in his later years. When Paul Signac was 21 years old, he met Claude Monet and George Seurat. He was amazed by Seurat’s work, his style, and the way he used various amounts of colors.
Donatello’s early works, such as the David, reflected a Gothic style. However, in the early 1410s, Donatello’s art showed a progression towards a more classical style. Like Petrarch, Donatello also wished to emulate the ancients. But since he was an sculptor, he looked to the artists of antiquity instead. With his friends Masaccio (a painter) and Brunelleschi (an architect), Donatello traveled Rome in the 1420s to study classical art.
By studying Andrew Wyeth’s work I have learned how to create colour balance and unity in my landscapes. I have also learned how effective the use of bright colour can be to portray emotion. William Kentridge has influenced my rough, cross hatch drawing style whilst Salvador Dali has influenced my approach to animalistic symbolism and unconventional composition. John Piper has inspired me to look at fine detail and taught me how to create texture with watercolour. Whilst working on my water colour landscape, “Safe Haven Revised” I have looked at Andrew Wyeth for a lesson in how to echo colours throughout my composition.
Renaissance science also gave painters new materials like oil-based paints. One of the most famous artists was Albrecht Dürer.

Working the technique of oil on canvas, he expresses his emotions and feelings about his native country and the impact of the past on people’s psychological state. This topic gave him the opportunity to participate in a joint exhibition with other artists in the “Cremata” Gallery on 8th Street in Miami. Another relevant influence of Chucho’s art has been the Renaissance, especially after his 3-months trip to Europe, where he had the pleasure to enjoy that type of art on cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Valencia, Seville, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Venice, Florence, Vatican, Rome and Athens. This trip impregnated his art with the perfectionist and dedicated style of that time. Chucho likes to recreate on the small details that sometimes only God would look at it, but he spends time on each line, as it would be by itself a magnificent piece of art.
