Florentine Painting began a little earlier in Florence than in Siena.
Florence and Siena are both named after a painter named Cenni di Pepi, who painted a panel depicting a flourishing school of painting in the 14th century.
The main altar of the church of Santa Trinita in Flor engendered individual artists who became famous in ence, and both grew out of local thirteenth-century painting traditions.
The figure of Mary holding the infant of the throne and Mary's lap looked straight ahead at Jesus.
Looking out at the viewer while gesturing at the prophets at the base of the throne and the angels towards her son as the path to salvation, she adopts a for at each side.
Cimabue creates high volumes, his use of light-to-dark modeling to sim lights on the drapery of Mary, Jesus, and the angels with ulate three-dimensional form, and his efforts to give natu thin lines of gold as if to capture their divine radiance.
In front of the Florentine painting, the ralistic warmth to human figures had an impact on the viewer.
The church of Santa Trinita is in Florence.
The church of the All Saints is located in Florence.
Both methods can be used to paint a wall.
Any necessary adjustments were made by the artist.
Cimabue's influence is reflected in the metrical composition.

The chapel was commissioned play gently across her stocky form, and her action- hold by Enrico Scrovegni, whose family fortune was made ing her child's leg instead of pointing him out to us, through the practice of usury.
The sin of Mary loaning money was considered so grave at the time that it resulted in exclusion from the Christian sacraments.

The Virgin's torso seems to have been conceived by her thin tunic, and the angels are substantial as an attempt to atone not only for his father's sins, but also for his own.
He was pardoned by Pope Benedict XI and not by Cimabue.
Giotto's goal was to express tion, and although he trained in Florentine, many of his principal works were produced elsewhere.
He was called to Padua in the northern part of the 13th century.
Giotto's paintings are on display in Europe walls.
The central band ible here) and the sanctuary wall with three highlighted of medallions spans the vault, crossing a brilliant, lapis scenes from the life of Christ.
The Annunciation spreads a blue, star-spangled sky in which large portrait disks float over the two painted architectural frameworks.
There is a tall, arched opening into the sanctuary that is set into the framework.
The scene of Judas receiving pay of the Virgin and her parents at the top and Jesus along the ment for betraying Jesus is to the left of this.
Giotto's genius for distilling complex stories into these two scenes are displayed in the compositions and color arrangement.
He compares the ill-gotten finan human dimensions of the unfolding drama--from touches of Judas to expressions of profound anguish-- usury.
The wine steward of the Virtues and Vices supports vertical bands similar to the jars of new wine himself.
Through rus on the register above, they respond to the human drama implied by the sharply slanted hillside behind both scenes, by pleading for Jesus's help or by expressing either aston and the rhyming repetition of mourners in each scene.
Their emotional state is expressed by his transforming ges.
The ture is highlighted against the dark blue background, the mourning in both scenes is resolved by resurrection, his profile face locked in communication with the similarly portrayed in the last picture in this set.
The fresco know that the miracle has not yet happened.
Giotto draws viewers into a circle of personal grief by depicting human suf over his dead body.
The Virgin pulls her dead son close, while John allows viewers to imagine the scenes in relation to their own life experiences, it also embodies the new Francis and others hunch over the corpse.
The scene of Judas's pact and the response to sacred stories can be linked to Giotto's personal devotion.
Savior and traitor are similar to Byzantine art.
The painting emphasized the decora off-center.
The potential of narrative painting with Judas's bright yellow cloak--the same outfit he wore--is enormous.
For this reason, some at the scene of his payment for the betrayal on the strip of art historians consider Sienese art more conservative than wall to the left of the sanctuary arch--almost completely Florentine art, but we will see that it has its own charm swallows Christ's body Facing them, faces glare and its own narrative strategies.
Siena's foremost painter between Christ and Judas was Duccio di Buoninsegna.
Peter had to sever the ear of the high in order to make the altarpiece.
The central panel was made of fabric, but it had to be painted on both sides because of the hand that pulls at Peter's cloak.
The main altar at the center of the sanctuary can be seen from all directions when it is installed on the broad expanse of cloth and gestures.
Rarely has the beauty of the poi and event been imagined from scattered parts.
The final design would be done the same way.
The wood for the panels should be fastened on a humid day, the tissue-thin sheets carefully glue grained, free of blemishes, and seasoned with a mixture of fine powdered clay and egg white on the drying.
The first step in preparing such a panel is painting bole.
The gold was burnished and then covered with white linen strips that were soaked in a gemstone or animal tooth.
Cennini specified that at least principally in tempera paint, powdered pigments mixed with nine layers should be applied, and that Gesso provided a ground, or Fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Italian painters worked surface, on which to paint.
The surface should have egg yolk, a little water, and a touch of glue.
