Description;Greco uses linear perspective, shown by a narrow road connecting all the way to the center at a point. Colors that were chosen helped detail the people's clothing and features. Shadows were implemented to give the painting a feeling of time and setting.
This artwork represents Classicism. It is this because it represents a historical event; the architecture is detailed along with the characters that are painted.
I find this Painting interesting because of the use of artistic skills and it's effect it has on religion. Greco is known for creating religious artwork, especially historical events like presented in this painting. Through these paintings it is suppose to spread the stories of the Christian religion and it's values. This painting shows great significance because of the importance of these events.
