Triumph of Saint Thomas Aquinas

  • Created in 1468-1484
  • Is Located in Musee Du Lobre in Paris, France
  • The thing that really sticks out about this piece is it is religous so therefore it is very Secularist
  • What is very interesting, in the reniasance it was all about the growth of mankind but Gozzoli still believed that religion is still important
  • This piece represents secularism (as i've been saying the past 2 bullets) because it doubts the belief of humanism by using religion
