Minoan Pottery. Notice the flowing, curvilinear lines, as well as the subject mattery: sea life, plants, shells, all water related. Limited use of color with the dark blue on the lighter background.
Medieval Book Illumination. This is a bound book. Notice the marginalia, use of gold, and color.
Durer. German Renaissance. Notice the attention to detail that clearly comes from carefully looking at the subject.
Notice the artist's logo, made of his initials.
