Berth Morisot was a French paintmaker and painter, who was associated with impressionism. Born into a family of a government official who was supportive of the arts she was able to openly practice her passion to paint. Through her painting The Basket Chair, she demonstrates her remarkable style of rough to light brush strokes that create a sense of realism in this piece. She was one of the few female painters of her time. The subject matter of her piece is not as interesting as that of Gustave Caillebotte’s The Orange Trees, due to the gender inequality and male superiorism.

Johannes Vermeer’s genius is credited to his artistic abilities, dating far beyond the 17th century. Vermeer is able to create beautiful paintings with extensive detail and simplicity, while breaking the boundaries of the normal 17th century modes. The majority of paintings that originated in the 17th century were historical paintings, based on biblical texts and greek mythology.

Critically Looking at Art: Audrey Flack - Marilyn (Vanitas) My immediate response to Audrey Flack’s Marilyn (Vanitas) is awe and curiosity. It is a beautiful work of art with vibrant colors and interesting still life items. The painting is realistic but also has a surreal quality.

The use of the fresco technique when painting, usually produces a matte-like finish once it has dried, a trait that can be noted when analyzing Bondone’s painting, The Meeting of Joachim and Anna.

This is mainly because The Annunciation was painted in tempera and gold leaf on wooden panels, the opposite of a fresco painting. The use of tempera and gold leaf added immense sophistication and brilliance to Martini’s painting, something that Bondone’s painting was lacking. While Bondone’s painting has a matte finish which can be associated with the Florentine style of art, and Martini’s painting has more of an elegant finish,

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.
