What’s the difference between...
The Medieval and Renaissance art?
The art in this time period is called Gothic art. It changes from stiff, simple, hieratic forms toward more relaxed and natural ones. Gothic paintings are mostly painting featured scenes and figures from the New Testament, particularly the Passion of Christ and the Virgin Mary. It emphases on lowing, curving lines, minute detail, and refined decoration, and gold was often applied to the panel as background color. The painting became more complex as time went on; the artists start to search on paintings and pictures. This search led to the perfection of perspective in the early years of the Italian Renaissance. Both religious and secular subjects were depicted in manuscript illuminations.
