Biography

Holy Trinity

Virgin and Child With St. Anne...1426

Masaccio was one of the first renissance artists, so he has influenced lots of previous artists with his idea of using math. Also his perspective was unique and the way he drew the scenes.

Yet again Masaccio does another drawing of the famous religion Christianity. This work was actually painted on wood. Not a canvas but just plain old wood. He used bright colors because the picture is a happy atmosphere. Many people have drawn madonna and child but this one is different because, the detail on the clothing is much more realistic then those in the past. Yet again he used linear perspectiveto give distance between the throne and the angels. The subject of this was of course Mary and baby Jesus with angels all around.

This was one of Masaccio's last paintings. It is one of his most famous paintings because he finished it in the same year he died. This painting is about a highly stylized and decorative painting we associate with Medieval times to painting emphasizing three-dimensional space and solid, realistic human forms. This is exactly the same techniques in all his paintings it's just that this can relate to more people due to the money and wealth factor.
