Pietà­ means “pity”. The Pietà, however, is the image of the Virgin Mary holding  the dead body of Jesus Christ. b. Lamentation­ The close relatives and friends of Jesus grieving over the body of  Christ. c. Directional line­ points out the most important part of the image. Here, the  hill/wall and the bodies of the angels and the friends and family of Christ are  pointing, bowing, or gesturing in some other way at the Pietà. d. Focal point­ the specific place or moment where the artist wants you to look.  Here, it is the Pietà. e. This work is much more naturalistic. f. This work is very important because it displays two very important scenes after  Christ’s death: The Lamentation and the Pietà. II. Siena, Italy a. Cathedral of Siena i. Known for its colored marble. b.

Maestà­ means majesty. ii. Has angels, saints, and martyrs.  1. St. Catherine, for example. She was tortured so they could get her  to renounce her faith but she didn’t so they killed her. iii. Polyptych­ an altarpiece composed of more than 3 sections. 1. Pinnacles, Central Panel, Predella (small panels). 2. Proposed reconstruction of the altar piece. iv.

The artist asks the Virgin to protect and bring peace to himself. He signs  his own piece. Golden leaves on a wooden panel. ii. Has elegant shapes, radiant color, flowing line, and weightless figures in  golden space less settings.  iii. Virgin Mary has heraldic colors as the Queen of Heaven. iv. Memmi painted the two lateral saints which have greater solidity and lack  the linear elegance of Martini’s central pair. d. Campo and the Palazzo Pubblico, Siena, Italy, 1288 – 1309. i. Palazzo Pubblico­ a concave façade and gigantic tower which served as a  defensive lookout over the countryside and a symbol of the city­state’s  power. e. Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Peaceful City and Peaceful Country from Effects of  Good Government in the City and in the Country, Sala della Pace, Palazzo  Pubblico, Siena, Italy, 1338 – 1339, fresco. i. Panorama of Medieval pastel architecture. ii. Sala della Pace­ Room of Peace, found in Siena’s city hall. iii. The leaders of the Sienese government commissioned this fresco for the  reformation of Siena. iv. In “Peaceful City…”, it is a panoramic view of Siena and gave knowledge  of perspective. v. Peaceful Country presents a bird’s eye view of the Tuscan countryside and represents one of the first appearances of landscape in Western art since  antiquity.
