Masaccio: the Cappella Brancacci
Sections on Learning Italian
Starting from the volumetric synthesis of Giotto, Brunelleschi's perspective, the plastic strength of Donatello's statues, Masaccio inserted his figures in credible architecture and landscapes, modelled through the use of chiaroscuro.
Bernard Berenson said of him, «Giotto born again, resuming work where death stopped him». For more information, visit Wikipedia's page on the Brancacci Chapel.
