Renaissance Art Gallery By: Chastity D'Amato

Mona Lisa:

The Mona Lisa was painted in 1503 by Leonardo De Vinci. He made it in Florence, Italy. The background in this painting is very old and sad looking and dreary but moan Lisa is smiling and looks like she's going through something but is still fighting to be happy. I think he is trying to show that she lives a hard life but hides it very well.

Pesaro Altarpiece:

The pastor altarpiece was painted in 1474 by Giovanni Bellini. He made it in presaro, Italy. The image represents scenes of the life of the same saints depicted on the central panel, with the Christ Child and the Virgin ador- ing him in the centre. Other saints are related to the city. The thing that stands out to me in this artwork is the gold colored frame.

The Last Supper:

The last supper was created in 1495 by Leonardo de Vinci in Milan. I think the last supper meant to be a religious painting and reveals all of the apostles but shows one disregarding him but reaching for a piece of his bread showing that Judas is betraying Jesus. I think this is religious because the renaissance was a religious time.

Saint George and The Dragon:

The Saint George and the dragon was painted by Rogier van der weyden in 1935, in Europe. It is kept in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The picture shows A man in a knights armor, known as Saint George, trying to rescue a princess (damsel in distress) from a dragon. I like the bright colors and the emotions shown being portrayed in the picture.

The Sistine Chapel:

The Sistine Chapel was painted in 1518 by Titan in Picapenza, Italy. This painting is located at the San Sisto, Piacenza. This is a Chapel painting and chapels are to be joyful and pretty and this painting gives you that message. This would be good in an art gallery because it pretty and gives a good and a very religious message which was greatly appreciated in the days of the renaissance.
