What Isims or Ideas are used in this piece?
There are many different isms used in this painting, two of the main ones are naturalism and perspective. Naturalisim is demonstrated through all of the the detail in people clothing and the emotions the people are feeling as they watch God's wrath, they are scared. Also the people are not in perfect form and shape, they have flaws. Perspective is demonstrated because the background where the people are looking is all perspective. The town is smaller so it looks farther away and the mountains are even smaller looking them look even farther away. It also has the focal point of the castle or cathedral (i don't which it is, it might be the Notre Dame, but it could be the kings palace.)
Perspectivism-the background behind the people look father away then the people-the focal point is the cathedral or castle
