Art Both Duccio Di Buoninsegna Term Paper

… Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1997, p. 1; 6]

The underlying messages and meanings of the two paintings are different. Lippi is showing Jesus as the bearer of the Book, which is the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. The book occupies the center point of the composition. Also, the eye is drawn to the background because the left leaf of the book points to a scroll that one of the angels is holding. The scroll and the book together refer to the Catholic teachings. Lippi is not painting the maternal love between Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus, as de Buoninsegna does. Unlike Lippi, di Buoninsegna is concerned more with the ability to convey universal maternal love. The purpose of the de Buoninsegna painting of the…. [read more]

A Comparison of Duccio's Madonna and Child and Fra Filippo's Portrait of a Woman at a Casement

Art is necessarily informed by the context of its creation and reception, and this is made clear when considering the differing representations of women in Duccio di Buoninsegna's Virgin and Child Enthroned Amidst Angels and Saints and Sandro Botticelli's The Birth of Venus. Whereas the former painting represents a transitional period, dominated by the Church but nonetheless adapting and changing methods of representation, the latter represents the ascendancy of humanism during the Renaissance. Duccio's Mary is still entrapped in the objectified role given to…. [read more]

Renaissance and Early Twentieth Century Term Paper

… Indeed, this is evident in the stylized exaggeration of limp watches set in a bleak landscape with the metal attracting ants like decaying flesh. The surrealist depiction of the monstrous fleshy creature in the center of the painting is also typical of modern art, which often leaves the interpretation of the artist's meaning to the viewer (MoMa, 2004).

A comparison of the two works reveals the use of techniques of proportion and light by both artists. The intended messages of both paintings are also unmistakable. However, while the details of Raphael's work are easy to interpret, the use of surrealism by Dali calls for a far more labored analysis. Indeed, perhaps this is precisely why modern art does not enjoy the degree of universal appeal…. [read more]
