The Hours of Mary of Burgundy-1477
This is a painting from the book of Hours. And this book is produced in Flanders. The painting illustrated Mary of Burgundy at her devotions. The size of this piece is quiet small, it is 22.5*15cm.
By Fra Angelico.
The size of this painting is 2.2*3.2 m. Use a very quiet and peace scene to illustrate the angle are come to announce that Mary will give birth to a son.
Both of those two paintings are showing the looks of human figures and architectures. In “The Hours of Mary of Burgundy”, the very first thing in to my eye is the interior, super obvious-Gothic architecture style, which is the feature from the north renaissance. The detail is amazing in this piece. Not only the human and architecture, even the objects on the table are very well done. Rendering details is the feature of Gothic style and the north renaissance was original from the gothic style, combine with the original renaissance features. In the gothic style things usually very detail, and make the art decorative. And the “Annunciation” is shows the typical feature of the south renaissance, the south renaissance is originally from Florence. The using of the liner perspective makes the scene more scientific, and also the human figures are more realistic. This painting is a mural, and this one is called fresco., it is the main from of mural in 15 century of Italian and south renaissance.
