Early Renaissance Painting "in Perspective"
Church and Convent of Santa Maria Novella
This tour will begin in the Brancacci chapel in the church of Santa Maria del Carmine that clearly demonstrates the evolution of Gothic to Renaissance painting styles. Here the painters Masaccio, Masolino and Filippino Lippi worked side by side to create one of the milestone decorative spaces of the Renaissance.
We will then continue on to the church of Santa Maria Novella to view one of the most important paintings of all times – Masaccio’s Holy Trinity. This is the first painting to ever make use of the tool known as linear perspective and demonstrated that the Renaissance had actually surpassed the limits of Classical painting.
