Michelangelo David

Michelangelo’s David is one of the most famous works of art and sculpture. The statue depicts the biblical figure David. This particular work portrays the moment before David slays Goliath. Prior works had depicted the scene before, during, and after the kill.

David is a famous Renaissance sculpture and is often displayed in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria. The statue is famous for its disproportionately large right hand. Michelangelo derived his inspiration for David from a bronze version created by Donatello in 1440. Donatello’s David depicts David laying his foot on Goliath’s head, whereas Michelangelo depicts him standing in preparation for battle.

Giorgio Vasari

Vasari’s early education was particularly rich in classical studies. He gained an appreciation for the Classical foundations of the Italian Renaissance. He was raised in the Tuscan town of Arezzo, where he studied under Guillaume de Marcillat. He later moved to Florence to become an expert in the art of drawing.

During his time in Florence, Vasari met Michelangelo. Michelangelo had invited Vasari to his home city, and he was put in the company of the renowned artist. After Vasari was made a cardinal, Pope Clement VII sought him out. He agreed to complete the sacristy and library at the S. Lorenzo church in Florence, as well as to paint four tombs for important patrons.

Sandro Botticelli

Sandro Botticelli’s ‘The Temptation of Christ’ is a work of religious art dominated by an overabundance of angels. It depicts the triumph of Christ over Satan, who is disguised in the painting. Botticelli’s portrayal of Christ is a masterpiece that incorporates his own ideas and traditional imagery to create an image that can have multiple interpretations.

Botticelli was active in Florence at a time when Humanism and the rational sciences were beginning to develop a new world view that would lead to the Enlightenment. He began work on his two most famous paintings during his time in Florence. His works were first seen by Vasari at Pierfrancesco de’ Medici’s villa. The paintings’ origins are disputed, as are their commissions.


The Virgin of the Rocks is a major work in Masaccio’s oeuvre and demonstrates the influence of Giotto, a leading Renaissance painter a century earlier. In this painting, the Virgin appears on a throne that recedes into a realistic space behind the picture plane, demonstrating innovative use of perspective. Masaccio’s use of perspective shows his desire to move away from the International Gothic style and reject the implausible pictorial space. He focuses on a realistic space, linear perspective, and unity in composition.

The compositional principles of Masaccio’s frescoes show that he incorporated ideas of perspective from sculpture and architecture into his own painting. This is evident in his large, recognizable figures that give off a strong impression of naturalism. He employs atmospheric and linear perspective and directional light to create a sense of space and light. He also employs chiaroscuro, the technique of representing form without outlines.
