Lucca Madonna depicts Mary (Madonna) and Jesus. Mary is shown wearing a red dress which focuses the viewer's attention towards her.
This piece depicts St. Christopher with the Christ Child on his shoulder. There are people in the background. What make St. Christopher stand out are his size & position highlighting the focal point.
This Hans Memling piece depicts St. Stephen. He appears in the center of the piece. His bright yellow and intense green clothing attract the viewer's attention towards the theme of the piece.
The St. Francis in the Desert piece depicts St. Francis standing in front of a stone house. His tan clothes stand out from the gray stone background.
This piece depicts Adam and Eve. Adam has his hand on a tree limb while Eve holds the forbidden fruit. The white over dark shades of brown make the theme stand out.

The Last Judgement depicts Christ's last judgment on humanity. There are a plethora of people in the shadows around Christ, Mary and a male in the light. The transition guides the view to the theme.
