AHS 102 Week 5 Notes th High Renaissance, 1500-1530 (Early 16 century)  Strove for even greater realism  More interest in classicism  Extreme interest in human psychology  Giorgio Vasari wrote much on the three main artist we will talk about o Leonardo da Vinci o Michelangelo o Rafael  Artist: Leonardo da Vinci o Overview  He is the oldest  Generally a nice man, agreeable  Perfectionist (most works unfinished). o Sketchbooks  Science and art – “Renaissance Man” – good at everything  The Vitruvian Man  From sketchbooks  Showed symmetry and balance of the human body  Classical influence o Military Service  Under Duke of Milan (different one than mentioned in previous chapters who tried to conquer Florence)  Leonardo was from Florence  Wanted to test military inventions  Tank, flying machines, crossbow, catapult  Work to know: Virgin and Child with St. Anne by Leonardo da Vinci o Shows chiaroscuro, atmospheric perspective o Sfumato = misty haze around figures o Pyramidal composition = balance; symmetry o Compared to other images St. Anne is young in this one o Much of Leonardo’s work contains elements from his own life  Had 2 mother figures he loved and respected  Theory of why St. Anne and Mary look the same age  Work to know: Ginevra de Benci, Leonardo da Vinci o We see more of her face – not profile like earlier portraits of women in Italy o She has more expression and seems more dignified o On the back, there was juniper, laurel, and palms  Meant to show her character  Revolutionizing how female portraiture was done  Work to Know: The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci o Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo – woman posing for the painting o Veil in her hair – hard to see b/c painting has darkened with age o Used to have eyebrows – was overcleaned o Also known as La Gioconda o Subtle, nuanced expression  Work to Know: Copy of Mona Lisa by Leonardo’s Apprentice (Prado version) o Was learning by copying his master’s work o More colorful o Not as successful in capturing the subtleties in expression  Work to Know: The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci o Very damaged – Leonardo was experimenting with a dry fresco technique o At a refectory in a monastery at Milan o John is the apostle always in the left of Christ o Judas isn’t as obvious in this painting  He’s the one who has a knife behind his back  Body language moving away from Christ, as if taken aback that He knows  Judas holding the money he was given for the betrayal  Knocking over salt on the table – old phrase “betray the salt”  Artist: Michelangelo o Giorgio Vasari was obsessed with Michelangelo  Called him “Il Divino”, the divine one o Michelangelo around when Laocoon and his sons was excavated o He was heavily influenced by classism  Work to Know: David by Michelangelo o Ultimate symbol of the high renaissance o Won a contest to do the piece o Tension in his face, drama  Chose moment in story before David took on Goliath, where Donatello’s David had already won and was standing on decapitated head o The expression changes as you move around the figure o Idealized figure; in the round o Note: a way to tell it’s a Michelangelo is from the very large hands  Work to Know: The Medici Tomb by Michelangelo o Lorenzo de Medici (statue)  Quiet, scholarly  Well captured in the sculpture o Giuliano de Medici (statue)  Open, confident o Many figures in the tomb o Unfinished because Michelangelo was called away to do Sistine Chapel o The figures  Under Giuliano and Lorenzo, represent time  Giuliano: male = day; female = night  Lorenzo: male = dusk; female = dawn  Note: The female figures look muscular and have breasts “tacked on” because Michelangelo only used male models  Work to Know: The Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo o Commissioned by a Medici, Pope Julius II o Complicated layout – middle = genesis stories o Went through a restoration project (cleaning away smoke and residue from candles and incense o Ignudi  Male nude figures for decoration and framing o Sibyls: female prophets o God Creating the World  Dramatic, not previous intellectual treatment of the subject of creating the world o God Creating Adam  Adam looks lazy – doesn’t have a soul yet  God reaching out to give him one  God appears to have weight, not ethereal (being held up by many figures) o The Last Judgement  Commissioned by Pope Paul III 20 years after the ceiling was done  Michelangelo had a crisis of faith when Martin Luther came along and started Protestantism  Compared to Giotto’s last judgement, Michelangelo’s is much darker  Still has the standard last judgement format  St. Bartholomew  Was skinned alive (holding a knife and his own skin)  Actually, the skin he is holding doesn’t match his appearance  It’s a gruesome self portrait of Michelangelo – how he felt after crisis of faith – deflated –depression  Image of Charon and River Styx  Ferryman to the afterlife (have to pay the ferryman) o Artist: Raphael  Died @37 from illness  Polite, professional  Delegated well  Got a ton of commissions
