Early Italian Renaissance

By Jordann McMahan and Naila Pencle

This painting shows two saints thoroughly conversing. The artist used an abundance of colors and the structure of both the clothes and body on the men are very accurate and are appealing to the eye.
This painting depicts the angel who visited Mary, the mother of Jesus, and told her she was going to have a child even though she was a virgin. The features are idealistic and the colors are vibrant.
La Primavera depicts the mythical goddess Venus and other mythical figures as they celebrate and prepare for the coming season of spring. We chose La Primavera because it has eye-pleasing qualities that draw the viewer to it.
Judith with the Head of Holofernes tells a story from the Old Testament about a widow named Judith, who saved her village by seducing and beheading Holofernes (the head in the basket), who was viewed as a tyrant in Renaissance Italy.
This painting represents Mary and Joseph taking Jesus to the temple as he was their first born son. The other people are Anna and Simeon. This painting is a simple and colorful depiction.
This painting depicts Mary in baby Jesus in a very religious and adoring manner. The child doesn't really look like a baby, and the painting is very formal and not very colorful.
The Nativity depicts the holy story about the birth of Jesus Christ. We chose this painting because we thought it was interesting how this artist chose to depict this scene, compared to other artists who have used different art styles to portray this scene.
A holy figure named Saint Nicholas of Tolentino is standing with a book (assumed to be a Bible) in his left hand. He appears to be holy because he has a halo over his head. We chose this painting because we wanted to learn more about Saint Nicholas of Tolentino.
