The Renaissance was a beautiful period, with beautiful pieces of artwork to the beautiful melodies in songs, the Renaissance is truly a time to remember. Many famous pieces of work and their artists came from this period, artists such as Michelangelo, van Eyck and da Vinci. Leonardo da Vinci is most famous for his piece called the Mona Lisa. Art is filled with diversity and different opinions, but how did da Vinci’s artwork influence the Renaissance period? The Renaissance period was from 1400 to 1600 BCE and was a very creative time in history.
He used color to make his figures pop from the scene, so that the viewer could see what was happening clearly. Fra even used color to portray emotion in his artwork, and many have been moved by the emotion that is inside ("Fra Angelico" Wikipedia). In addition, Fra always was playing with the new techniques that were coming out as people started creating more art during the course of the early Renaissance. Fra 's use of his bright colors, emotion, graceful, flowing lines, and linear perspective is what made his paintings so sought after during the early
Raphael was known as the one of the best artists in the Renaissance. He was the greatest designer of the Renaissance. He influenced painters up until the 1900’s. Raphael put realistic emotions onto paintings. He changed the way people look at art.
He started gaining an interest in painting at a young age, with the help of his father he became a well-known artist. The two well known and admired paintings Da Vinci created throughout the Renaissance were “The Last Supper” and “The Mona Lisa.” The paintings helped set the excellence for all future portraits. Leonardo Da Vinci was a highly admired painter that inspired many during the Renaissance, throughout his career and today, making him a dominate Italian Renaissance artist due to believing art was connected to science and
The people at the gathering would have wanted reasons to admire the great work of art so they would start discussing it in detail. The Aegisthus Painter’s red-figured kalpis would have had a similar affect with large gatherings. By the 470sBCE when it was painted, the technique had already been honed and had a fan base. It became more popular, because “replacing the graver with the brush gave the artist a subtler line and a new range of line expression” (Boardman page 280).

His quick climb and prolonged fame were the result of a natural skill to handle paint and be able to manufacture pictures that obscured anything created by his forerunners in America. Copley figured out how to formulate his pictures, and also provided vividly to the British-loving clients, who desired English-style paintings but scarcely journeyed to England. He engaged in multiple layers to satisfy clients, accomplishing many styles of art with extraordinary
The next photograph I was intrigued by was of the model Kate Moss in a “body armour” made by Allen Jones (Fig.2). Jones is one of the most famous British artists of the last century with his controversial artwork. He was first known for his paintings but most of his fame came from sculptures. By looking at his work it is easy to tell that he is obsessed with the female body/figure, it seems as if it is his fetish. I came across Jones’ work a long time ago and since then I have never forgotten it, especially his sculpture of a table but created with a woman’s body, mostly the work in which he shows female and her body as objects in his artwork is quite shocking.
Because of this, he is considered “one of the greatest German painters of his age.” Along with spreading culture, he also created artwork that challenged that of the Renaissance, therefore furthering the cultural development of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Grunewald poured out his emotions into his artwork and inspired others to do the same, creating more dramatic and intense paintings and other pieces of art. Matthias Grünewald’s style of painting relied greatly on Systems of Faith and his Christian beliefs. The Isenheim altarpiece was painted by Matthias Grunewald around 1515 for the Monastery of St. Anthony near Colmar, France. This magnificent painting ties directly to the Bible.
Leonardo’s Mona Lisa was very complex, especially her lips. In order for Leonardo to get her lips to be so realistic, he dissected and studied the nerves and movements of the human mouth. Leonardo was not only able to create a unique smile, but was also able to make the lips realistic. Leonardo’s painting represents the Renaissance because he adds realism to the painting that people would see in their daily life. Leonardo also incorporated bright colors and a vivid background.
When the viewer observes the great detail and realistic colors entwined in the painting, it is seen as a work of art. The work obviously has so much input and time involved, along with the devotion Tim had to the project, it is a wonderful piece. The photographic resemblance leave people in awe. Vermeer was even considered one the the greatest painters because of this. When the idea that tools were used to create this effect, the majestic wonder is almost striped from the oil painting.
