An introduction to art history

Moses by Michelangelo in San Pietro in Vincoli, Rome
Works of art have traditionally been associated with vivid and abiding experiences and memories. Of the various form of arts, painting are usually the most highly privileged.

Sistine Chapel's ceiling by Michelangelo, Rome

Painting provide useful information by virtue of the events and scenes and people that they illustrate. Paintings preserve former layouts of cities and landscapes, the appearance of long-dead kings and queens and philosophers and artists, the configurations of formers battles and the scenes of terrible disasters.

When we stand in front a painting we expect to perceive something understand the artwork we are looking at. The kind of paintings normally commissioned in the principal urban centers of Europe reflected the existing stratifications of the social world at a time when the main sources of patronage were the church, the state, the aristocracy and the increasingly independent mercantile class of bourgeoisie. 

Artists like Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci worked for various type of patrons in different city of Italy creating astonishing and impeccable artworks, which will be introduce during the next Term at new Farm State School Community between October 28th and November 11th.
