Art & Artists of the RenaissanceHow did the art & artistic techniques of the Renaissance differ from & improve upon that of the Middle Ages?Before you begin..Lets review how to use images as evidenceThe saying a picture is worth a thousand words applies hereWhen using an image as evidence describe what can be seen in the imageDescribe colors, styles, details, subject matter, all things observableYou do not need to put these observations in quotation marksI will give you some examples of this and you will get some practice doing this laterWe will begin by looking at some examples of medieval art

My observations:This image uses only basic colors like blue, yellow and red. The image is based upon a religious scene which is evident because the individuals seems to have halos behind their heads and their hands are pressed together like they are praying. The image is very flat looking and the individuals in the image do not look realistic. Their bodies appear very long and very thin which does not look like a realistic person. There are not very many details in this image. The image is largely composed of the praying figures.
