Colorful Paintings From The Renaissance is a blog about representational art. A great variety of resources, both online and in real life, are listed on this site. You’ll find a history of realistic painting from the Renaissance through the Baroque period, as well as more modern styles like Naturalism and Impressionism. The world of contemporary art will also be discussed, with an emphasis on figurative painting.
There is also a section devoted to the photography of still lifes, landscapes and other scenes not usually considered as works of fine art. These images may not be pieces that hang in museums, but when seen for what they are – very convincing representations of reality – you may find yourself appreciating them just as much as any famous artist’s work.
The Renaissance was a time of great change. In the 14th century, most people believed that the size and color of an object had something to do with its importance. Artists used this idea in their paintings. Big and bright things were considered important.
The Renaissance was a time of new ideas in art. Painters began to focus on the shape of objects instead of how big they were or how brightly colored they were. This new way of painting is called “representational” because it tries to represent things as they really are.
Later in the Renaissance, artists became interested in using color to show moods or feelings, instead of just trying to make the colors look like the real thing.
This blog will explore representational art from the Renaissance, and will try to show how artists used shapes and color to create pictures that looked more like real life than earlier paintings did.

What is representational art? Representational art is art that represents something, rather than being abstract.
Many people are not aware of the difference between representational and abstract art, but I believe that it is a crucial difference. If you have never seen representational art, you might be surprised how colorful and vibrant the paintings can be.
Abstract artists try to convey the essence of the subject without actually resembling it. They use shapes and colors to evoke what is in their mind’s eye. The result can be spectacular and fantastic, but often lacks depth and detail.
Representational artists try to portray the subject realistically. They spend a lot of time observing their subjects, making sure that every detail is right. Many times they do not use color at all, although some subjects are too vibrant to be shown in black and white.
A common misconception is that representational art is too boring because everything we see in everyday life looks like a photograph and doesn’t look very artistic. However, there are many different types of representational art that use different techniques to make their paintings interesting and eye-catching.
The term “Renaissance” which literally means “rebirth”, is applied to the rich flowering of art and literature in the Italian city states during the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries.
Let’s look at some famous paintings from the Renaissance. were a rich source of inspiration for artists. Here are some examples of representational art from that period:
The Girl With the Pearl Earring – Johannes Vermeer
The Birth of Venus – Sandro Botticelli
Girl with a Pearl Earring – Johannes Vermeer
The Sonnet – Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
The Faun with an Apple – Giorgione
Rest on the Flight into Egypt – Annibale Carracci
Adoration of the Shepherds – Matthias Grünewald (these are just a few samples from a much larger list)
The Renaissance was a movement in the arts that began in Italy during the 14th century and lasted until the 17th century, beginning with the reign of Pope Urban V and ending with the death of Michelangelo. It is one of three periods in which artists experimented with changing techniques and subjects; the other two were the Baroque (beginning in the late 16th century) and Mannerism (beginning in about 1520). During this period, artists explored a new secular direction, as opposed to religious subjects. One of the greatest achievements of Renaissance artists was their development of techniques to show perspective in art, which gave greater realism to their paintings.
Towards the end of the Renaissance, new genres were invented such as landscape painting and portrait painting, which became very popular. Other genres, such as still life also began to be created. The idea of “art for art’s sake” began to develop towards the end of this period, when artists painted for pure pleasure and developed more individual styles.
Art has to do with the conscious creation, by one mind, of a visual experience in another mind. It is one of the highest and most complex forms of communication; and like any other form of high-level communication, it requires a specialized language.
