The Renaissance

Published: Jan 28 2021

Part of Series 3: Artistic Movements for Beginners. Join our host Dani Van De Broucke, as she explores the Renaissance paradigm through the exploration of three famous art pieces of the time:

  1. The Sistine Madonna [the Madonna di San Sisto ] by Raphael [Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino. (1513-1514) https://www.italymagazine.com/news/raphaels-iconic-painting-sistine-madonna

  2. The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan Van Eyk (1534) https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/paintings/jan-van-eyck-the-arnolfini-portrait

  3. David by Michelangelo [Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni] (1501-1504) https://www.florence-museum.com/michelangelo-david.php

    A fitting theme for the start of a new year, and a time where all our old world systems and paradigms seem to be shifting and crumbling around us. On a positive note, new ideas flourish in times of change, just as they did during the Renaissance!
