Late Renaissance Art

Carolina Montoya & Rachel Allen

This painting shows a recurrent element in Parmigianino’s paintings and a large component of mannerism, elongated body parts, in this case, an extended neck of the Madonna. I chose this piece because it had an eerie aura to it because the background was dark, and foggy.
This painting shows the Madonna holding baby Jesus, who appears to be dead. I chose this piece because it had a sophisticated and bright background and it also because it somewhat contrasted the Madonna of San Zaccaria. This piece is bright and lively, and the Madonna of San Zaccaria is dark and rather creepy.
This painting shows the people of Pisa, Italy, being attacked by the Florentine people. I chose this picture because it is whimsical, yet realistic, and has small, intricate details.
In this painting, Lorenzo de Medici is shown in the center receiving gifts from all of his people. I chose this painting because it had Lorenzo de Medici who we learned about in the Medici movie.
I chose this picture by Tintoretto because as we have been studying the Medici family I recognized the name of the man in the sketch. I found it very interesting that the Medicis were still influential at this point in the late renaissance. This is a portrait of Giuliano De Medici, the younger brother of Lorenzo de Medici. He was assassinated in the attempt to kill both the brothers, however Lorenzo lived.
I chose this painting of Athena and Mars because a few years ago I read many Greek mythology books and in most of them, this picture appeared quite a lot. I found it quite amusing that I found it again in this project and now know who painted it. In this picture Athena, the goddess of wisdom and strategy, is in battle and so is Mars, the god of war.
I chose this painting by Veronese because it illustrates the return to religious figures during the late renaissance, or mannerism, period. The scene depicted in this is exactly what its title describes, the baptism of Christ.
I chose this painting by Veronese because it was one that he painted three separate times. This was one of those three, and although they have slight differences, they all look very similar. One must wonder why an artist would paint a similar scene three times. This painting depicts a scene from Greek mythology.
