The Ambassadors (1533) is a painting by  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Holbein_the_Younger - Hans Holbein the Younger . Much of what the Renaissance is about is found on this painting.

This is something I just found - "Allegory of the Human Life", Alessandro Alori. I like the symbolism /or at least what I think it presents/, of the humanity doing what everyone tries to get done, and the angel trumpets that we are living on a borrowed time.

The Creation of Adam, on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and painted by Michelangelo. On describing the fresco it has been described as thus, “Despite the height of the ceiling the proportions of the Creation of Adam are such that when standing beneath it, “it appears as if the viewer could simply raise a finger and meet those of God and Adam”.

Madonna Surrounded by Seraphim and Cherubim, 1452,Jean Fouquet. I love the way that Mary in this painting has been made into this high class Renaissance figure in the way she is portrayed.

Anne Boleyn:

Queen Elizabeth I
http://www.luminarium.org/renlit/lizvandermeulen.jpg
I think there is much similarity in the shape of the face and nose, but Elizabeth doesn't have the playfulness in the eyes like her mom - and with a reason, I think. After what happened to her mom, and all the pain Elizabeth went through as a child because of it, it's no wonder that she never married; I wouldn't too. Elizabeth eyes are serious, almost frozen, under control, nothing like the charming drawing-in eyes of Anne.

In some way this Saint Rosa, by Melchiore Caffa, 1665,

 as another type of Venus, a spiritual one, since a Christian saint is one who replaced the earthly ecstacy with an otherworldy one; but the spiritual  one is usually presented in the same way as the earthly one - I suppose because there is no other way to present in physical what one knows in physical terms only. Freud would have a ball with this.

It is intersesting to compare Renaissance art with the mostly ecclesiastical and artistically sketchy art from the early and mid middle ages. Strict religious pattern of medieval art vs flamboyant, perfect, unrestrained painting of the Renaissance. On Wikipedia, in History of Painting both periods can be compared. What caused such an evoltion in painting through the Renaissance?

What caused such an evoltion in painting through the Renaissance?

The Renaissance art was built in the base of the Gothic art; this was the time when art started to be seen as educational medium, since most people were illiterate. I suppose this brought the popularity of art to start with. Then with the interest toward the classical art and studying the Roman/Greek sculptures the idea of prespective was developed, I'm not sure from where because the Greek and Roman pictorial art didn't use perspective; besides I'm not sure how many such pictorial models were available at the time. Brunelleschi was experimenting with perspective, Donatello was using it in this relief:
Relief of St. George and Dragon DONATELLO: Relief: St. George and the Dragon

Masaccio used perspective too, in pictorial presentations, this is his "Tribute Money":
Tribute Money
I suppose the combination of the roundness of the classical sculpture with the perspective did the trick - many of Michelangelo's paintings are imitations of sculpture, one can almost see them as sculptures, like in his "Leda and the Swan":
http://www.wga.hu/art/m/michelan/2paintin/2leda.jpg">



Then the inspiration they were drawing from religion plus the inspiration drawn  from the classical mythology combined and gave rise to hundreds combinations of different aspects of those. The still life appeared, and became very popular in Flanders; I consider this to be a really unique European development, since I don't remember seeing it neither in the classical art, nor in the Arabic one, nor in the Byzantinian one, so it has to be a local development. The Italian painters seen to have been interested more in religious or mythological themes, while in Flanders and the Netherlands a real interest toward the life or ordinary people was developed, and in the simple things of life - an apple, a goose, a vase - very non-pretentious, and still investigated and presented in a most delightful way:
Nicholas Maes, 'Old Woman Dosing", 1656:
Abraham van Beyeren's "Still life with Lobster", 1653
So, it was the combination of old inspirations from the classics, the invention of the perspective, and using loads of imagination in all possible directions, enjoying every part and side of life and loving it in colors - this is my take on the roots of the Renaissance anyway.

You sure Perspective is lacking in the classical art?

 I would add there was no photography, no videos, no printers. Painting was a booming industry, needed in medicine, construction, landscaping, etc...Relaxation of medieval religious strict rules was a step ahead in medicine. Before that, opening up the body to study anatomy was not allowed. Painters were suddenly required to draw internal organs.

Painters were mostly professionals rather than artists. Artistic Renaissance painting was the outcome of multitudes of people making their living as painters one way or another. Some of them, by way of sheer statistics became artists. So, to me, it was the very important role of painting in the growing quickly developing time of the Renaissance that led to the great Renaissance art, so superior and so diffrent to its predecessors.

Sandro Botticelli had a muse called Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci, and is the face in many of his paintings. Though she was also painted by others too. I've got to say I have a fascination
 of the whole idea of muses, and I believe this one is very special.

Cleopatra, by Piero di Cosimo, 1480. This one is my favourite painting with Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci.

Yes, it seems that perspective is used, for the middle figure. What time is it done? - I had never seen this picture before.

This is a painting by Filippino Lippi, St Paul visits St Peter in Prison. The date is unknown, and it is an oil on canvas.

Can you imagine you feel the walls all around you closing in, or you feel as if you are being trapped within your present relationship with your husband, wife, job…etc…This is the kind of closed in feeling I’m getting from imagining being St Peter in that prison. Yuk!!!

That feeling is also called "Museumitis".  It was explained to me by the curator of the Museum of the UofP.  The  air in a museum is controlled.  Its humidity and oxygen levels are set for the displays, not the folks looking at them.

Oh wow, red, thank you for the information.Smile I hadn't heard of museumitis before, but I can understand the concept after reading about it. I guess winter conditions with minimal heating could bring on similar feelings too, if you feel trapped and closed in in your home now for any period of time.LOL

Another fantastic painting, The Holy family on the steps, this one by Nicolas Poussin, 1648, and it is oil on canvas. The symbilism on this one is also unmistakable. The figures on the steps are in a pyramid shape with Mary and the infant Jesus at the apex, showing their usual importance. You can also see John the baptist handing Jesus an apple, symbolising original sin and Jesus' accepting his role in the redemption of humanity.

I think it's a Greek Orthodox image. Perhaps the winged hoops are representations of the "flying saucers" Ezekiel claimed to have seen

The original site does not give details about its origins, that why I asked.
Do you notice the black god?
What are your ideas of a Black god in Europe?

Do you believe that you are withering away and imagine that death is staring back at you where ever you go? Mad now as it might seem, it is because you've been looking at this picture for too long.

Doesn't Rogier van der Weyden, in this captivating portrait, Portrait of a Lady, give the impression he's captured a very real person's passionate intensity? Absolutely fascinating!

Three of my favourite pieces of art showing the likeness of Isabella d'Este by three different artists. The third piece, a terracotta bust is thought to be of the illustrious lady of the Italian renaissance. I shall leave it up to you to decide for yourself.

The first is by Titian, Portrait of Isabella d'Este, or Isabella in Black, c1534-36. Oil on canvas.


The second is a charming portrait of Isabella d'Este in the guise of Saint Justina of Padua. It is  a fragment from an altarpiece, painted in the 1490s by Bartolomeo Montagna.


The third is a terracotta bust by a sculptor Gian Cristoforo Romano, and probably of Isabella d'Este. c1500.
