In this module, we looked at a variety of styles in the Renaissance in Italy. Artists like Botticelli, Bellini, Michelangelo, and Bronzino all incorporated Renaissance characteristics into their works, and yet their works look different from each other.
To address form and content in the artistic developments and trends that took place in the Renaissance, look closely at examples from each of these artists.
- Choose one painting by one of the artists listed above, and identify characteristics and techniques of the Renaissance style.
- Then, address how the work departed from typical Renaissance formulas to become signature to that artist’s particular style.
- Finally, why did you select this artist? What draws you to their work?
