His Work

This piece is called Visitation. It was created in 1619. I think this piece is in a museum because it is so bright colored compared to a lot of his other work. The significance of the piece is the vibrancy of the colors that's why I found it so interesting. This exhibits humanism because of the perfection of the people in the painting.
