It is here, in the thirty-eight scenes from the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary, that his immense dramatic power is most fully manifest. Lorenzo continued the alliance with Milan, but relations with the papacy soured, and inPapal agents allied with the Pazzi family in an attempt to assassinate Lorenzo.

And Cimabue himself, shadowy though he is, was evidently something of an innovator despite his Byzantinism. Typical of the era, Cimabue painted Jesus as more miniature adult than baby. In the s Cosimo de' Medici the Elder had established Marsilio Ficino as his resident Humanist philosopher, and facilitated his translation of Plato and his teaching of Platonic philosophywhich focused on humanity as the centre of the natural universe, on each person's personal relationship with God, and on fraternal or "platonic" love as being the closest that a person could get to emulating or understanding the love of God. In his short life he executed a number of large altarpieces, an impressive Classical fresco of the sea nymph, Galatea, outstanding portraits with two popes and a famous writer among them, and, while Michelangelo was painting the Sistine Chapel ceilinga series of wall frescoes in the Vatican chambers nearby, of which the School of Athens is uniquely significant.

Raphael: The School of Athenscommissioned by Pope Julius II to decorate a suite now known as the Raphael Rooms in the Vatican Raphael had the good luck to be born the son of a painter, so his career path, unlike that of Michelangelo who was the son of minor nobility, was decided without a quarrel. Later Mannerism Bronzino d. Part 3 considers civic and religious imagery over the course of the century to argue that it was not merely conservative and repetitive, as Meiss and others would have it, but that art patronage by the Sienese government reflects a high level of skill in manipulating both political iconography and artistic style that belies any apparent conservatism. The theme of Michelangelo's ceiling is not God's grand plan for humanity's salvation.

Heaven on Earth Through the Eyes of a Trecento Maestro

He was outstanding both as an innovator and as a creator. In the struggle between truth and beauty which underlies all art, see aesthetics beauty is inclined to get the upper hand in Siena, truth in Florence.

Botticelli was one of the first to experiment with drawings for book illustrations, in his case of Dante.
