Renaissance Oil Paintings, Renaissance Oil Painting Reproductions

In the Early Renaissance, artists like Masaccio and Piero della Francesca began to enhance the realism of their work by using the new techniques of the perspective, . Piero della Francesca wrote treatises on scientific perspective. The creation of credible space allowed artists to also focus on the accurate representation of the human body and on naturalistic landscapes. Masaccios figures have a plasticity unknown up to that point in time. Compared to the flatness of gothic painting, his paintings were revolutionary. At the turn of the 16th century, especially in Northern Italy, artists also began to use new techniques in the manipulation of light and darkness, such as the tone contrast evident in many of Titian's portraits and the development of sfumato and chiaroscuro by Leonardo da Vinci and Giorgione. The period also saw the first non- religious themes. Debate has ensued as to the secularism of the Renaissance emphasized by early 20th-century writers like Jacob Burkhardt due to the presence of these - actually few - mythological paintings. Botticelli was one of the main painters whose paintings comes down to us today, though he was deeply religious and painted plenty of traditional religious paintings as well.
