Giotto Paintings

Giotto paintings are some of the finest to have come from pre-Renaissance Italy and are another example of the role that Florence played in influencing the overall development of European art towards all the movements which we enjoy today. Giotto's period is roughly classified as Late Gothic but his style was highly original and sought to bring new qualities to the rather stale paintings which dominated at that time. You can also find Giotto paintings here.

The consequences of having his career as long ago as the 13th and 14th century is that there is a great lack of reliable information on the artist himself and also many of his works have deteriorated substantially. Fortunately there is still plenty enough information to appreciate the significant role that Giotto played as an innovator of the art world and more is discovered on him even today. The reputation of Giotto di Bondone has continued to remain strong over many centuries and his name is now set in stone in the international art hall of fame.

Frescos were amongst the most common art medium during the period of Giotto and further on through the different stages of the Renaissance that spread across most of Europe. The reason for this was that most key artists were commissioned to create paintings within internal buildings by major religious institutions who at the time had huge amounts of wealth to spend on making their places of worship exceptionally beautiful environments.

Giotto is an artist who remains relatively unique due to the timing of his career and he is seen who helped to move ideas within art onwards from the middle ages to the exciting times of the Renaissance which was led from his native city of Florence in Italy before spreading to the other provinces of this country. Previous styles to Giotto were seen as less than inspiring and he helped to bring about real style and personal artistic characteristics.

Entrance into Jerusalem is another fine example of Giotto's successful use of religious topics for many of his paintings and frescos. You can see Entrance into Jerusalem above plus many other impressive religious depictions throughout this website with the best works from his career all included as images plus a further list of all the rest further down the page. During the 13th century and onwards for several centuries, religious scenes domainted the art world but in the modern era things are much more varied, with portraits, landscapes and other ideas now also very common.

The most important celebration of the life and contribution of Giotto can be found outside the internationally-respected Uffizi art museum in Italy, where a small statue of him can be found. Much art around his time was on a national level with communication between countries far more difficult than it is today but his reputation has now become fully accepted right across the world and his place in art history is fully established.

St Francis Preaching to the Birds is one of many works from Giotto which played on the life of St Francis. Many others are also included throughout Giottopaintings.com. Giotto was respected by many for the natural poses in which he captured his portraits and this led to him being afforded a consistent and substantial salary from the Comune of Florence as a reward for the exceptional pieces he created which helped to enhance the artistic reputation of his native city.

International art fans are always likely to visit Florence in order to understand and enjoy the merits of Italian art which played a major role in the development of all western culture.
