MasaccioThe Madonna and Child with Saint Anne
The Madonna and Child with Saint Anne
was made by Masaccio and Masolino in
1424. This work was simple yet
extraordinary. The painting follows a
upward direction, creating a pyramid shape.
The painting is bright due to the use of a
dense color paste which absorbs the light
and heightens the tones. All Masaccio’s
work were painting’s due to the fact that he
was a Middle Italian Renaissance artist.
Most Middle Italian Renaissance artists
painted paintings.

MasaccioSt Jerome and St John the Baptist
In 1478 Masaccio left Florence for Rome
to work on the polyptych in Santa Maria
Maggiore, interrupting the work on the
Brancaccio Chapel, but he only had time
to begin the left hand side with the
panel of St Jerome and St John the
Baptist before he died at age 27.
Because Masaccio died before he
finished the painting Masolino had to
finish it alone. Because Masaccio was a
Middle Italian Renaissance Artists all of
his work were paintings.

Leonardo de Vinci –
The Last Supper
Leonardo's painting of the Last Supper
was made symmetrically according to the
laws of central perspective, with Jesus in
the center. He is physically isolated from
the other people and his hands are
pointing to the bread and wine,
introducing the Eucharist the central
event. The other figures are reacting
directly to Jesus, and some of them are
talking with each other. This Painting is
the most famous last supper painting.
Leonardo De Vinci like other High Italian
Renaissance artists began to use oil paint.

Leonardo de VinciMona Lisa
This picture is a portrait of Mona Lisa, who
was born in Florence in 1479 and in 1945
married Marquees del Giaconda. From the
beginning this painting was greatly
respected, and it was considered the typical
Renaissance portrait. It became even more
famous in 1911, when it was stolen from the
Salle Carrée on August 21st, 1911 by Vicenzo
Perrugia, an Italian workman. In 1913 it was
found in Florence. Leonardo worked on it for
four years. The smile of Mona stands for the
movement of life, and the mystery of the
soul. The mountains, above the plain and
the river, symbolizes the universe. Leonardo
starting painting portraits like other High
Italian Renaissance artists during this time.

Albrecht DürerChrist As The Man Of Sorrows
This painting depicts Jesus after he
has been beaten by the soldiers,
just before he was crucified. Jesus
was bleeding from his wounds and
was holding the instrument used to
beat him. He was wearing the
crown of thrones and was leaning
his head on his hand to show a
gesture of grief. His other hand rests
on a ledge, a pose which Durer
often used to add a sense of depth
to the portrait.

Albrecht DürerHouse By A Pond
Dürer painted this water color soon after
he returned from Venice, probably in
1496. The site has been identified as a
pond which was connected by a small
canal to the River Pegnitz, near St John's
Church on the outskirts of Nuremburg.
The painting is based around the circular
form of the pond, a shape similar to the
painted boat in the front. Most northern
renaissance artists began to paint water
color paintings. This work reflects this
time period because water color
paintings were often painted.
