KEY IDEAS- HIGH RENAISSANCE (1495-1520)
- Revitalization of the city of Rome under Pope Julius II
- All about Roman Grandeur by producing awe inspiring artistic projects
- Key Points: Symmetry, Balance, Ideal Proportions, Triangular compositions
- Venetian Painters stress sensuous forms with sophisticated color combos
- Portraits are of true likeness and personalities
- Renaissance = Before sack of Rome
- Mannerism = After 1527
KEY IDEAS- MANNERISM (1520-1600)
- Mannerist art is deliberately intellectual, asking the viewer to respond in a sophisticated way to the spatial challenges
- Complicated compositions, distorted figures, complex allegorical interpretations
- Renaissance means a "rebirth" suggesting that the 15th and 16th centuries marked an awakening from the "dark ages". The dark ages were actually a great time period where Europe gave rise to laws, language and economics.
- New rise to secularism- not a huge focus on the hereafter
- After the Protestant Reformation in 1517, High Renaissance art was not reflective of so called perfect world. The complexities of Mannerist art better describe this period.
- Rome was sacked in 1527 by Charles V against France, Milan, Venic, Florence, and the Papacy
- The Council of Trent (1545-1563) or the Counter-Reformation, created a new order of priests, the Jesuits.
- Jesuits used art as a teaching tool and a religious statement.
Inspired by the Renaissance artists' use of portable, stretched canvases for their paintings, students will paint a mini canvas! Optional- "glaze" or vanish your canvas, just like the masters did.
