From my trip to the art museum the piece which stood out the most to me throughout the entire experience was David Ghirlandaio’s Altarpiece showing the Virgin and Child, with Saints Apollonia and Sebastian. The work of art specifically depicts an example of a sacra conversazione such as the ones we have looked at in class. This piece was made specifically in the 1490’s or the Early Renaissance time period and directly came from Florence, Italy where it was commissioned by the church as an altarpiece. Ghirlandaio specifically used tempera and gold on panel for this painting which he made in his family enterprise. Overall, the painting is roughly five and a half feet in length and height and is an excellent example of the type of works one would expect to see out of the Early Renaissance time frame.

Caravaggio’s beheading of John the Baptist dramatizes the story, emphasizing the emotion and elaborating on the theme of Earthly
The Merode Altarpiece, a piece by artist Robert Campin, is a representation of the Annunciation of Christ. The piece was originally painted in Flanders during the Early Renaissance period in 1425.

It was a piece commissioned by the Duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza. This painting shows Christ and his twelve apostles in the moment when he tells them that one of them was going to betray him. This work of art had many Renaissance and Humanist characteristics. One aspect of Humanism is that it is extremely detailed and symmetrical; their bodies are very similar to human beings. Something interesting is that the apostles are in groups of threes, also there are three windows, and Christ is given a triangular shape.

A Baroque art is an intense movement of explosive energy. Of the three artists, Caravaggio, Bernini, and Gentileschi, each have the own baroque art style. The artist Caravaggio, who had difficult personality, had a controversial art style. For his painting, he used contemporary peasants and common settings for biblical stories. One of the example from Caravaggio work is The Conversion of St.Paul, where he makes a religious experience look natural. Bernini had adopted a style that was passionate and full of emotional and with psychological energy. The Bernini sculpture of David, display that passion and emotion, has his David is a Counter-Reformation Rome anxious for a fight. Artemisia Gentileschi was a fan of Caravaggio and she "Cpainted a
This piece looks toward the beaten, contorted body of Christ, who is being presented to the people of Jerusalem before he was crucified. This forceful painting was probably an altarpiece. It was meant to appeal to the viewer’s emotions. Inspiring empathy and reverence for Jesus’s suffering. The calm resignation on Christ’s face contracts with the agitated expressions of the other figures in the painting. In this way, the painting offers a means to contemplate our own humanity and Christianity’s ultimate promise of eternal life after death.

I am introducing Pietro Perugino’s artwork, Christ Deliver the Keys of the Kingdom to Saint Peter, as it is the most moving painting that effectively mirrors the social, cultural, political, as well as the philosophical scene from the Pre-modern era.

The iconographic representation of the Madonna and Child is one of the most common representations in Christian art. The term “icon” in this context is a reference to a holy image to which special veneration is given. While many works by many artists depict this subject, through their various differences we can chart a change in artistic as well as Christian ideals through the 13th-15th centuries. During this period artists and scholars broke from Medieval thought, philosophy and representations in art and began to embrace the ideas of humanism. From Giotto’s early renaissance interpretation of The Madonna and Child, to Domenico Veneziano and finally Hans Memling’s Flemish rendition we can see how technique, interpretation and styles changed through the renaissance.
