One of them is named Leonardo Da Vinci and he is an engineer/painter. He came out with many ideas that changed how people think. He was born on 1452 in Vinci, Italy, a town near Florence. In 1472, he joined the painters guild. Then, he started to work for the dukes in Milan.
However, it should be seen that Bruegel was the most important Netherlandish painter of the sixteenth century. The Peasant Wedding is one of Pieter’s most familiar painting Since he painted a lot of peasants and landscapes he was sometime referred to as “peasant Bruegel”. His work provided a closer perspective into world of nature and everyday life. Bruegel was born on September 9, 1525 Berda of Brabant, which is now in the Netherlands. During this time period, Northern art was strongly influenced by Italian arts.
Michelangelo Merisi Caravaggio (1571-1610) was born in Italy. He received a short apprenticeship in Milan and then went to Rome where he worked as an assistant painter. Soon after, he started selling his paintings. Graham (2000) explains that cardinal Francesco Del Monte desired Caravaggio’s art and commissioned him to do painting for the church Of San Luigi. Caravaggio’s realistic naturalism appeared at the Contarelli chapel where he designed the life of Saint Mathew.
Religion and Renaissance Art and Thought My research focuses on how religion influenced Renaissance art and thought. My primary thesis is that religion changed the way the Renaissance artists employed art as a transformative agenda to persuade social issues. Levine’s essay, “ Michelangelo's Marble David and the Lost Bronze David: the Drawings,” is the first source that depicts the political elements of the David sculpture. Conlin’s article, “Gladstone and Christian Art,” the second source, examines, in part, how the links to liberal Catholicism influenced the works of artists during the Renaissance era. Together, the two sources offer rich insights on the social factors that changed art and thought during the Renaissance era.
In this essay I will be discussing the key differences between the eras and how both were very important to the architecture, art and music that we have today. The Baroque style grew and rose from the 17th and 18th century. The style came about right after the Renaissance era. The reason that this style mainly started was because the Roman Catholic Church wanted to use this baroque style to try and counter the Protestant types of music, art, and architecture that were flourishing around the same time that this style was created. This time period was basically the same as the Catholic Counter-Reformation Art that took place to also counter the Protestant Reformation.
Most of these causes and events are classified into five main themes: imperialism, militarism, the Balkans, nationalism and alliance system. Nationalism was a major cause of WW1 because it was ignored by many groups which felt that people of the same ethnic origin, language and political ideals had the rights to independent states. This resulted to conflict and left Germany and Italy divided because various groups felt strong about national autonomy that caused them to be subjected to local dynasts or to other nations (Alpha, 2009). Parts of Italy were left under foreign control which brought nationalism to be. After the unification of Italy was accomplished in 1861 and that of Germany as well in 1871, there was still a problem
A good example of these themes can be found in the treatment of the Desmond branch by a number of the contributors. Chapters by Robin Frame and Peter Crooks illustrate how the fortunes of the Desmond earls of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries were entwined with English courtly politics. By the sixteenth century, however, the Desmonds had cultivated significant contacts on the Continent in order to protect their patrimony. Thus, they were increasingly viewed with suspicion particularly in light of confessional tensions that plagued Europe after the Reformation. David Edwards’s thought-provoking reassessment of the causes of the second Desmond rebellion refocuses our attention on the tensions between the fourteenth earl of Desmond and the English Queen Elizabeth’s Irish officials.
Painting and drawing that was practiced by artists in the Northern Europe during the early part of the sixteenth century was also known as Mannerism. it was praised for its highly distinctive style. many mannerists were based in Antwerp, France and Germany for which they were important because of their disparity. "The foremost sixteenth century painter of the Netherlands, and a follower of Bosch, was Pieter Bruegel the elder, (c. 1525-69). Early in his career, Bruegel worked in Antwerp.
Futurism originated in Italy in the early 20th century and it was both a social and an artist movement, where its followers desired to create a new idiom and included poets, artists and writers and people interested in politics. “Futurism had two commendable features; first, it offered a means of analyzing energy and so skirting the inherent immobility of paint on canvas. Second, it was loaded (surprisingly enough) with political implications, being wildly regarded as the style of anarchists and social reformers”. Futurism artists celebrated war and the growth of fascism and new machinery. They used a lot of movement in their paintings to help express both the natural and manmade forms, with many artists painting machinery and motor cars and aeroplanes.
