in college 100-level course I received a perfect score with brilliantly written as a professors comment Masaccios fresco The Tribute Money 1427 is a continuous narrative which uses contrapposto aerial perspective and humanistic facial expressions and body postures to illustrate purposeful interaction in its portrayal of divine intervention to assuage a resolute IRS man This concept of emotions in motion is even more stunning in his Expulsion from Paradise 1427 and his Holy Trinity 1425 is a brilliant example of the use of architect Brunelleschis newly-discovered scientific perspective in creating the appearance of three dimensions on a flat surface These examples typify the techniques and philosophy of Early Renaissance painters in Florentine Italy beginning around 1420 This rebirth of the classics from Greek and Roman antiquity spread its influence to Rome and Venice and its sway is also seen in Late Gothic painting north of the Alps where it is evident in works by Flemish master Jan van Eyck for example in his Arnolfini Portrait 1434 The Early Renaissance in Italy saw the widespread adoption of oil paint although its invention was credited to Northerner Jan van Eyck Oil was a godsend for it blends more readily due to slow-drying characteristics and thankfully for us it stands the test of timeas long as it is not mixed with buttermilk or tempera as in da Vincis Last Supper debacle Oil allowed the use of the technique of glazing to show depth which taken further can be used to produce impastos thick layers seen later in Titians Christ Crowned with Thorns 1570 that reflect ambient light from raised texture Oil opened to painters a world of versatility permitting artists to wing it while achieving the Early Renaissance concept of visible reality Since I am not politically correct or am hopelessly devoid of artistic interpretative capabilities I shall assert that there was a talent void after Masaccios inopportune death
