The Annunciation, Stefano d'Antonio di Vanni, ca. 1430 (Renaissance), From the collection of: The Walters Art Museum
There are halos around their head, which symbolizes that they are angles from heaven. This is a religious painting, which a lot of them from the Renaissance were. I like the way the artist uses halos around every persons head because it makes me think that some of those people are important religious people and all about heaven and god.
In the Renaissance, there were a lot of artist using realism in their paintings. The title of this painting really stands out to me because of how it is saying the this is what a city should look like. It is talking about how an ideal city is, just how other paintings were how the ideal person should look.
This painting is showing when Jesus was born. His mother, Mary, is holding him. I really like the painters use of realism withing the angles, Jesus, and Mary. I also like how it looks like the angles on the side are looking over baby Jesus.
Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata, El Greco, 1585-1590 (Renaissance), From the collection of: The Walters Art Museum
This is a very religious piece. You can see, on the left side, Jesus on the cross, dying. I really like the way that the colors made your eyes go to Jesus first, then slowly go to the man looking up to him.
