    *Protestant countries used more still life themes instead of the religious ideas. Saul falls from horse. Horse in a rear-end view*Matthew is sitting a dark pub surrounded by money counters. Matthew was a former tax collector. *Apostles realized that the person at the table with them is resurrected Christ.

    *Gentileschi was raped by her tutor and was subjected to a long painful and humiliating trial. Stuck her with thumbscrew to get her to recant her claims.**Completed at age 25. Captures David as he is getting ready to hurl the stone. Biting lip and is in a great torque position. Power about to be unleashed. This David is different because it interacts with the space around it. David is preparing for battle as others demonstrate his victory.*Designed a chapel to show off this work of art. St. Theresa reportedly heard voices and had visions that she had been pierced by an angels dart infusing her with divine love. The pain was so great that I screamed aloud; but at the same time I felt such infinite sweetness that I wished the pain to last forever. Face expresses ecstasy and exhaustion. *Walls seem to be in motion

    *Located in Rome. Opposed to Renaissance domes that appear to be separate form the base walls this appears to be one with the structure. *Best known for his nudes. He was happily married twice as his first wife died. His wives were his models for feminine beauty. *Article lightening with dark sky, spot light on Christ. Creates a power emotion response.*Possible reference to Charites of Greek mythology, goddesses of charm, beauty, and creativity. *Painted a sequence of paintings to celebrate life of Marie de Medici. 21 large scale oil paintings were finished in 3 years. One painting of Marie giving birth to son as manger scene. Ruben omitted Maries double chin. *Commissioned by the Jesuits in 1619. Ignatius is casting out demons from the church. Ignatius has a halo and has the clergy on his right. Supported by angels above him. Upper left the demons are cast out from those listening to Ignatius. Church is intervening between God and man, shows importance of the church. Propaganda piece.The Netherlands was an independent state, democratic, Protestant country. Religious art was forbidden. Artist left to the mercy of the market place due to no patronage by the church, royal court, or nobility. Artist began to specialize in subjects, (still life, seascapes, interiors, or animals) Dutch artists had the ability to capture light on different surfaces and suggest texture. Referred to as Little Dutchmen, not to include Hals, Rembrandt, and Vermeer. *Still life began in post- reformation Netherlands. Interest for how light would reflect off different surfaces. Before Baroque landscape was little more than the background. Often painted open sky's, water, and fields. Used threatening clouds to infuse melancholy emotions. Ability to bring his subjects to life often laughing and holding a tankard (drinking glass). Trademark was men or women in high spirits. Lips are slightly open and hand raised as to be getting ready to speak. A sly figure with a smile on his lips, a twinkle in his eye, and upright mustache. Militiamen portrayed as feasters not fighters. Groups usually painted as a class picture in rows. They are in relaxed poses interacting naturally, with individualized facial expressions. Figures linked through the red, white, and black colors. Flags, sashes, and ruffs demonstrate a boys night out. Hals prefers to enlive people instead of embalm. Hals had 10 kids his second wife stayed in trouble with the law and he fell in love with beer and wine and died a destitute man. Early Style His early work was the height of fashion. He was difficult to deal with. Patrons often times had to result to bribery to get their paintings on time. Late Style In 1642 his wife died after loosing 3 children in infancy. His art became more psychological instead of physical. A theme of loneliness. Etching Most accomplished etcher. Over 100 self-portraits. The old Rembrandt is painted with bolder strokes. Younger painting when he was 23 uses Caravaggesque (one-side of face in deep shadow). Focus changes from costume detail to focus on the inner man. He was 54 in the older image. Thought to have been a night scene because of darkened varnish. After cleaning it was revealed it was a day scene as the captain gives the orders to the militia to march. The drum, pikes, lances, rifles, flags appear chaotic they converge at right angles part of a geometric pattern holding everything together. Lieutenant's uniform match the little girls dress to connect figures. Known as the Sphinx of Delft because of the mystery of his life. Died bankrupt at the age of 43 leaving wife and 11 kids. Use of rectangular shapes create stability. Paintings usually have spare room light from a window with a figure doing a domestic task. Lighting is his true subject. Used dabs or pricks so the raised surface reflected more lights. To break up the wall he adds nail wholes and stains He invented the comic strip or a sequence of anecdotal pictures that poked fun of the foibles of the day. He wanted to overcome Englands inferiority complex with continental artist. Didnt paint perfect subjects he included their irregularities because it revealed character.
