Gothic Painting (1280-1515)

The Gothic style began with the architecture of the 12th century, at the height of the Middle Ages, when Europe was putting the memory of the “Dark Ages” behind it and moving into a radiant new era of prosperity and confidence. At the same time, Christianity was entering a new and triumphant phase of its history, and so the age of chivalry was also the time of the building of  [ Read More ]

The Impressionist painters were faced with the difficult challenge of trying to capture an intense, fleeting impression of nature in true color and light. A painting was typically completed in a very short timeframe to capture the true essence of light. The brushstrokes were left as applied emanating beauty and spontaneity within the painting.   The perfect example is Monet’s series of Watter Lilies.

Late Gothic Painting

Gerard David, Hieronymus Bosch, and Matthias Grünewald were all early 16th-century artists and contemporaries of the other Northern artists Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, and Hans Holbein.

High maniera (Mannerism)

The second period of Mannerism is commonly differentiated from the earlier, so-called “anti-classical” phase. Subsequent mannerists stressed intellectual conceits and artistic virtuosity, features that have led later critics to accuse them of working in an unnatural and affected “manner” (maniera). Maniera artists held their elder contemporary Michelangelo as their prime example; theirs was an art imitating art, rather than an art imitating nature. Freedberg argues that the intellectualizing aspect of  [ Read More ]
