Renaissance Art

Venus of Urbino, Tiziano Vecellio, 1538, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
I saw this painting when the Uffizi museum came to Fort Lauderdale for a short exhibit. I really enjoy the red that Titian uses in this painting and the skin tone of Venus is realistic. Another realistic aspect of this painting would be the sheets. There is plenty of detail in the creases and ripples of the sheet which makes me appreciate the attention to detail more.
The birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli, 1483 - 1485, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
This painting offers less vibrant colors than the last painting of Venus. We can see that the landscape is vanishing behind them and also there are lines that add texture to the bottom left of this painting. There is also an angel on the left of this painting which was a common topic for renaissance artists to paint with.
Madonna and Child with two Angels, Filippo Lippi Lippi, 1460 - 1465, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
We see there are two angels, one of which we are able to see the wings coming out of his back. There is also a halo on top of Madonna's head symbolizing that she is a religious figure. Many artists during this period would draw halo's around religious figures heads (Jesus for example).
The Judgment of Solomon, Francisco Gutiérrez Cabello, 1650, From the collection of: Fundación Banco Santander
I chose this painting because it shows you the renaissance style architecture. We can also see that beautiful red in the painting again which probably signifies a person of importance. I also enjoy the linear perspective used to make the architecture look like it is large.
The Ambassadors, Hans Holbein the Younger, 1533, From the collection of: The National Gallery, London
This painting has many symbols in it which tells the viewer that trade with other countries have been completed (Tablecloth) and also other symbols of knowledge and european unraveling (Martin Luther and broken string). Even the stretched skull offers symbolism. Very meaningful painting.
The Alba Madonna, Raphael, c. 1510, From the collection of: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
The blue used in this painting is very soothing and the landscape is beautiful. I also see more religious symbols, for example the cross in the babies hand. All subjects in this painting also have the halo if you look closely.
The Adoration of the Magi, Sandro Botticelli, c. 1478 - 1482, From the collection of: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
The focus of the painting is portrayed by everybody else staring towards the middle of the painting. It is also the focal point for the viewer seeing as it is what we are most focused on. I also appreciate the linear perspective used in the top middle of the painting. Shows that the wooden architecture is layered and we can grasp the concept of distance in this painting.
