Throughout this exhibition, I have chosen the theme of posture. Each piece shows the art works posture beyond just what we see and tells more about the person beyond the art. Positions and stature will also help the viewer analyze more about the portraits.

Portrait of Isabella of Portugal, Rogier van der Weyden, about 1450, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
In this portrait Isabella has a dominant posture. Her hands are placed in a respectful manner. This rt work shows that Isabella is someone is well respected.
(Front, unframed), From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
This piece is very bold and beautiful. The portrait is enlightened by colors. This work is peaceful and shows the angels worshiping. Madonna's robe and the chair she sits in expresses power and respect
Madonna in the Meadow, Raphael, 1505/1506, From the collection of: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien
In this painting the artist used colors that enhanced Madonna's beauty. This painting seems almost realistic. The posture of Madonna is angelic and soft. Madonna's attire shows how she is viewed.
Virgin and Child in a Domestic Interior, Petrus Christus, 1460 - 1467, From the collection of: The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
In this art work their is many things shown. This piece shows a real life scenario. In the background it shows a Christ like figure. The virgin is shown fully cloth with nothing showing but her face.
Shepherd with a Flute, Giovanni Girolamo Savoldo, about 1525, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
In the painting the Shepherd has real like features. His body is well clothed. The clothing of the shepherd seems feminine. The flute seems to symbolize the beauty of music and his love for music.
The Mourning Mary Magdalene, Colijn de Coter, ca. 1500, From the collection of: Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest
In this painting it shows Mary mourning. Mary's posture seems as though she is praising the Gods. Mary's attire is very covered and reserved. The colors used in the painting is gloomy and emotional.
Christ as the Suffering Redeemer, Andrea Mantegna, 1495-1500, From the collection of: SMK - Statens Museum for Kunst
In the painting Christ is shown slouched in a uncomfortable position. Christ hands are opened showing the piecing wounds from his crucifixion. On the side it appears to be a tomb cover in which they will use.
The Crucifixion, with the Virgin and Saint John the Evangelist Mourning, Rogier van der Weyden, Netherlandish (active Tournai and Brussels), 1399/1400 - 1464, c. 1460, From the collection of: Philadelphia Museum of Art
The main object that stands out in this painting is the Christ like figure being crucified. In the corner my eyes went straight to the virgin as she is crunched in a overwhelming emotion typed posture.
The Entombment, Masters of Dirc van Delf, about 1405 - 1410, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
This painting shows emotion. Throughout this art it shows how they are preparing to tomb the Christ like figure. By the posture of the figure, it seems as though he was someone they idolized and worshiped
