 Painting in OIL, developed in Flanders, was widely
adopted in Italy.
The differences between the two cultures:
 Italy  change was inspired by humanism with its
emphasis on the revival of the values of classical
 No. Europe  change was driven by religious
reform, the return to Christian values, and the
revolt against the authority of the Church.
More princes & kings were patrons of artists.

How Much Water Should You
The amount of water a person should drink varies on
their weight, which makes sense because the more
someone weighs the more water they need to drink.
Multiply by 2/3: Next you want to multiple your
weight by 2/3 (or 67%) to determine how much
water to drink daily.
 EX - if you weighed 175 pounds multiple that by 2/3 =
117 ounces of water every day.
Activity Level: Sweat = loosing water - You should
add 12 oz of water to your daily total for every
30 minutes that you work out. (45 min. means add
18 oz for the day)

Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco)
The most important Spanish artist of this
period was Greek.
1541 – 1614.
He deliberately distorts & elongates his
figures, and seats them in a lurid,
unearthly atmosphere.
He uses an agitated, flickering light.
He ignores the rules of perspective, and
heightens the effect by areas of brilliant
His works were a fitting expression of the

The artistic production of
Northern Europe in the 16c was
vast, rich, and complex.

with a Mannerist phase, which

North than it did in Italy, where
it was outmoded by 1600.
