Uffizi Scavenger Hunt

Katie Elder

I selected this painting because it contains many aspects of Renaissance art. The painting depicts a church with Greek and Roman inspired arches and columns and contains pops of bright red.
This portrait mainly uses the color red which was common during this time. Additionally, the people in this picture are depicted realistically. Lastly, a wealthy patron is portrayed in this image.
I chose this picture because it depicts the Virgin Mary, or "the Madonna" which was popular in paintings of the Renaissance. Also, the people in this painting are very detailed and lifelike.
This painting includes the Madonna, realistic people, and bright red. These are all recurring themes in art of this time period.
In this painting, a beautiful image of the Virgin Mary is depicted. Additionally the people are wearing vibrant red. That is what makes this appropriate for the time period.
