Tintoretto By: Jack grogan


Tintoretto was born in Venice, Italy on September 29, 1518. Countries in Europe were still following the ways of the Renaissance in the sixteenth century. Unfortunately, his family was on the lower end of the social class. Early on, Tintoretto lived in a lifestyle of poverty. He was the eldest child of 21 children in his family. As he grew up, in the city of Venice Italy, he spent most of his life inside his workshop. The workshop was originally an unknown Venetian station that would grow unbelievably as fast as Tintoretto himself. Lifestyle would become much better once popular. He spent most of his life in his own hometown of Venice, Italy in the bosom of his family. Tintoretto was taken in and trained inside a Venetian workshop following the 1530's. His shop would be become legendary since it’s where most of his portraits were created. Briefly trained with Titian as an apprentice, worked for Scuola di S.

Rocco 1539 and became a member in 1565, had no regular kind of education because of social class. Somehow, he knew the work of Venice's prominent painters though. Tintoretto was legendary when it came to his paintings. Several works Tintoretto himself created were: Miracle of the Slave, The Origin of the Milky Way, Last Supper, Christ Washing the Disciples’ Feet, and The Siege of Asola. Unlike Titian, Tintoretto did not make a decision between certain patrons. Instead of leaning towards foreign clients, he tried to fulfill nearby demands. One ism is naturalism. In most of Tintoretto’s paintings, from mountains to trees to bright textures, several signs of classicism pop up. This ism is mostly shown because of how he followed Titian as a child. Another ism is classicism. He demonstrates this ism by including lots of castles and older man made items like monuments.

Renaissance Work

One of his works was Miracle of the Slave. This piece was created sometime in 1548. Unfortunately, there is no specific date for the portrait. Nowadays, the original painting of Miracle of the Slave is still being housed in Gallerie dell' Accademia. Although the painting has not been published into any book today, it still lies around wide open in the world of the internet. The paintings shows off an episode of St. Mark, patron saint of Venice. It shows god making a local slave invulnerable by using his powers. The reason why this piece is significant is the fact it shows the painter devotes to his love of art to display his respect and power of god.

The piece has several descriptions to describe itself. First off, it's exhausting because everything and everyone is so intense and close together. It's also religious because god is hanging from the sky helping the civilian. Lastly, it's colorful because everyone wears different colors and the setting is daytime. Anarchic because people are fighting and nudging each other to meet god himself hanging from the sky. Messy because nothing seems to be put in the right place in this painting. I feel naturalism would fit really well since we know that Tintoretto followed Titian who has many famous paintings with beautiful settings. This setting is bright and displays a wide variety of colors. I found this piece interesting because I’ve never seen such an experienced artist like Tintoretto create such a chaotic and beautiful painting at the same time. You could find this piece of beauty either on the internet or in the original housing of Gallerie dell' Accademia in Venice, Italy.
