Renaissance Art Research Project You will be researching renaissance art, architecture and sculpture using the Oxford Art database. (oxfordartonline.com) Your goal is to find a piece of renaissance art that interests you, while finding out more about the artist, the pieces location, and why it represents renaissance art, architecture or sculpture. I will demonstrate how to use the Oxford Art database in class. Your final research product should look like this example: Artist Name: Leonardo da Vinci Name of Work: The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne Medium (what it’s made out of): Oil paints on wood Year Created: 1510 Location of Work Today: Musée du Louvre, Paris Why this work of art represents the ideals or techniques of the Renaissance: This painting by Leonardo da Vinci represents renaissance painting for several reasons. The methods used to create light, shadow; depth and overall realism are techniques new to the Renaissance. The effective use of perspective is evident in the mysterious background of craggy peaks. This is a religious scene set in what looks more like 16th century Italy rather than 1st century Palestine. Da Vinci painted the world he saw around him, using research, observation and careful study. Why you chose this piece of art: Mr. DeRobbio World History I like the use of shadow that adds an element of mystery, typical of Da Vinci’s painted work. The use of diagonal lines add a sense of motion and action to what would otherwise be a stationary family portrait.
