We will also look at the key artists and writers of the Italian Renaissance. As a way to deepen your understanding of Renaissance & Renaissance art, you will work together in groups and examine individual works of art. Each group will fill out an Art evaluation worksheet for each artwork you examine. Each person will receive a group grade of 75 points.
Discussion about your painting can be found on museum websites as well as the supplemental reading section of this website. The videos below give a good explanation about the uniqueness of Renaissance art.
Use the work sheet as a guide as a help in exploring the background of the artist, the importance of the painting and the influences found in the painting. Group members should check each other’s discoveries.
