By doing this, I think he allowed his work to be more relatable to his fellow peers. For example, in Collins St. 5pm, a painting that depicts the busy post rush hour commuters traveling along Collins Street in downtown Melbourne is a very simplistic piece of art at first glance. In the image, hundreds of white Australian men, dressed in the same standard suite attire, show little to no emotion on their faces, as they casually make their way to or from work on a typical 9 to 5 workday. As this image may seem to lack a certain demeanor to it, considering the value and praise it receives, the intentions Brack had for the piece when it was first produced were completely different from what he thought about it many years later. “Looking back on it now I am totally unsatisfied, because of the condescending attitude I adopted in relation to the people in the street, their lives were just as complex as mine, if not more” (McDonald, John. 2009).

This style is defined by the rough, short brushstrokes that give the painting a textured look. In this specific painting, the single brushstrokes are visible all around. They especially stand out in the grass and leaves. These wide strokes create a vague, though recognizable, subject. One can also see the several different colors of unblended strokes that combine to make up the landscape.
Matthias Grünewald was a necessary part of the Renaissance, as he helped to spread many ideas about art and culture such as Systems of Faith, Humanism, and Mannerism to the Northern half of Europe. He mostly painted religious and Biblical scenes, but incorporated certain elements of the Northern Renaissance into his work. He uses lots of symbolism in his artwork and challenged the standards of artwork in his time. Matthias Grunewald was a pivotal piece of the Northern Renaissance as he helped to spread the cultural changes of the Renaissance to Northern Europe. Because of this, he is considered “one of the greatest German painters of his age.”
Frederic Church was born in Hartford Connecticut in 1826 and is the best-known student of the Hudson School of landscape painting. Church’s main commitment was to study and understand the natural sciences but he also was concerned with the addition of a spiritual dimension in his paintings (Frederic). At the age of 18, Church became the pupil of Thomas Cole in Catskill, New York after being introduced to him by Daniel Wadsworth. He then moved to New York to begin teaching pupils of the things that he has learned. Church inherited Cole’s title as the premier landscape painter in America.

He was drawn to the most dramatic sides of nature, such as waterfalls, chasms, holes, storms, the fury of weather, and the balance of light and dark. Nature’s life cycles became a metaphor to him for the human condition. All of his paintings are meant to tell stories about life and nature. He captured the sense of wilderness and the power of land that hasn’t been explored by humans. He loved nature and cared deeply for the health of the environment, not wanting negative consequences for the landscapes he painted.
After the Dark Ages, artists were able to bloom and discover new things in technique and science. These changes can be seen in the art of the Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo periods. This paper will focus on one artwork from each art period. During the Northern Renaissance, the Triptych of St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist stays close to the recent religious artwork style, but starts to explore perspective and begins to unflatten the human form. During the Baroque period, The Elevation of the Cross is another triptych that sticks close to religion.
