Prior to the Renaissance, art was centered around religion and biblical figures, but as patrons began to become more common, the norm for art began to shift. “Madonna Enthroned Between Two Angels,” by Duccio di Buoninsegna, as shown in Document A, depicts Mary holding a baby Jesus. The unproportionate and dull colors of the painting
The first thing that comes to mind when one look at the Lamentation and The Death of General Wolfe painting are both of painting show death. OR The theme of both Lamentation and The Death of General Wolfe is the death of a leader, but the two paintings differ greatly in the detail and in the style. Although style and occasions are totally different. Lamentation is made by artist Saint Gorge in 1320-1350 in France. It has an Italian culture.
In Document A, there are two paintings; one from the Middle Ages and one from the Renaissance. The first image by Duccio di Buoninsegna depicts Mary holding a baby Jesus in her arms. The second painting by Leonardo da Vinci displays a famous painting by the Mona Lisa, which is a woman standing in front of a fairly bland background. The Mona Lisa’s bland background makes you focus more on the person and her emotion rather than a very religious and holy background that has almost no emotion involved in it. Also, Document B presents two quotes that oppose each other in many ways.
Although The two paintings, use the same subject matter and name, they are both very different visually. The main difference is how they have chosen to portray Olley. Dobell’s Olley has her sitting in a more classical pose, with her gloved hands in her lap
As expressed in Document A, from Theodore Rabb’s Basic Books, The Last Days of the Renaissance & The March to Modernity, “The clearest evidence of the break with medieval culture comes from the visual arts”. The Middle Ages had an emphasis on religious figures and symbolism. The two images contained Document A included: Madonna Enthroned Between two Angels by Duccio di Buonisegna from the late 13th century as well as Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, from the early 16th century; upon further observation the conclusion can be made that not only was the art from the Middle Ages focused mostly on religious subject, but it also had two-dimensional lifeless figures and drab colors, as expressed in the painting. This great contrast is clear because the Renaissance painting is the complete opposite, possessing realistic figures which were true to form and three dimensional, vibrant landscapes, with a focus on the individual. As Rabb put it, “the new artistic styles would echo broader movements and interests of the new age.”
The two pieces of art that will be compared and contrasted are the Bull-leaping and Lascaux Cave. Both paintings have similarities and differences. The first difference is where the two are located. The Bull-leaping painting is located in the palace of Knossos in Crete, while the cave painting is located in the Lascaux grotto in France. The two pieces of art have similarities and differences in the setting, audience, artist, materials, scale, and function.
This means that they can be viewed from all angles and are not attached to the a background (135). In both sculptures there are some very interesting disproportions.

Henri Matisse and Francis Bacon are two very different artists. Matisse liked to paint thin and pretty paintings while Bacon liked to paint think and ugly paintings. Matisse liked to use patterns that often drew your attention to them more than what might be going on in the painting unlike most other paintings. They patterns were almost too much to look at
The other was commissioned by the government much later. This is a very realistically styled romantic painting using colors like black,
Every artist is different and that goes for the art too. Any piece of art looks different with the shape, style, color, or even smell sometimes. On a canvas, it could have similar brushstrokes and completely different. Also, the reason why they started to paint, either to make money, to gain status, or just for fun. Just like there is differences between artists Henrietta Johnson and John Smibert.
The Lamentation vs The Deposition Art is a practice that is constantly evolving around the world. Art practices during the Renaissance in Italy and in Northern Europe depict similar themes, but artists express their understanding of narratives differently. Giotto di Bondone, an artist during the Renaissance in Italy, and Rogier van der Weyden, an artist during the Renaissance in Northern Europe, depict the crucifixion of Christ in two similar, yet distinct manners. Giotto created The Lamentation in 1305 and van der Weyden created The Deposition in 1435. The strategies each artist uses in their work highlight the important factors that influenced artists in each region.
One of the clearest similarities is that both artists
Raphael's Galatea was painted during the High Renaissance period while Botticelli's The Birth of Venus was from the period of Early Renaissaance. Raphael's Galatea and Botticelli's The Birth of Venus had both males and females' figures. Meanwhile, Raphael's Galatea and Botticelli's The Birth of Venus were both based on Greek mythology. Both paintings' color tones were very earthy and natural. As i mentioned in the beginning that both of the paintings were took place near the ocean, it is because i noticed there were dophins, seashells on Raphael's Galatea; while Botticelli's The Birth of Venus had the Goddess of Venus standing at a sea shore on the ocean.
