Art Timeline 2
Linear perspective in European paintings is quit exciting. The use of shadows, lines, light and placement the painter uses for the paintings is almost hard to see with a glance, if the view reallystudy¶s a painting they can come up with a story the artist was trying to give.Arnolfini Wedding Portrait
by Jan Van Eyck, 1434
There is a lot of detail is this painting. Notice the couple is not really holding hands but thewoman has her hand placed gently in his open palms. The mirror itself has pictures of ThePassion of Christ on the points all around. On the back wall above the mirror there is aninscription that says, ³Johannes de Eyck fuit hic 1934´, which is translated into Jan Van Eyck

was here 1434. Notice how the woman is bulging out in the stomach it is said that she was pregnant. The dog standing near the woman¶s feet is said to protect the root of fidelity.Zacharias writes Down the Name of His Son
by Domenico Ghirlando 1486-1490
 Notice in this painting, everyone is looking down; the focus of the painting is the man sittingin the middle or the baby? It¶s really hard to tell, but the focus is actually the man sitting in themiddle, the title says it all in that he is writing down the name of his son to make it official. Notice how the bright colors pop and the fields in the arch ways make the painting more broadand full. The shadows around the arch ways brings the attention up from the man and woman inthe middle to the outside.
