Early Renaissance Painting 1250-1450 DVD
In late 13th-century Italy, the way art looked changed dramatically
In late 13th-century Italy, the way art looked changed dramatically. The patterned, stylised forms of the Middle Ages gave way to greater naturalism, as for the first time since the ancient world, artists sought to observe the world around them, and reflect what they saw in their paintings. Why and how did this happen?
This film explains the birth of early Italian Renaissance painting, through its greatest artists.
Introducing an extraordinary period of art history, this DVD features paintings by Cimabue, Masaccio, Duccio and Piero della Francesca and explores the cities of Florence and Siena.
