The abnormal glories 

In this art gallery, I have gathered some of my favorite pieces that depict the darker and unusual scenes from the  Northern Renaissance. Artists include Bosch, El Greco, and Bruegal.

I chose this painting because the pink,bulbous plant by Saint John really caught my eye.When you think of plants in the Renaissance,you might think of normal plants. However, this is not the case.

I chose this piece because it honestly just made me laugh. It reminded me of a soap opera with the dramatic lighting and facial expressions on the figures.
I chose this painting because I found it so interesting that someone went out of their way to paint a portrait of a yawning man. I find it extremely amusing.

I chose this painting because I just found the perspective really interesting. I feel like so much is going on and it's just very scatterbrained. However the details are impeccable.
