2MODULE TWO: FRANCE AND THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE ASSIGNMENTThe portrait of Margaret of Austria is a French painting that depicts a young lady whowas betrothed to future King Charles VIII. She is captured at her tender age of 10 with a regalattire that portrays her status as a member of the French court as well as proclaiming her wealth.Her faith is also clearly illustrated through the kneeling and holding of the rosary. On the otherhand, the St. Wolfgang Altarpiece is a sculpture that portrays the life of the Virgin as well asdepicting a vision of a paradise where Christ surrounded by many Saints crowns the VirginMother as the Queen of Heavens. It is a strong affirmation of the existence of heaven. Therefore,both works of art dwell on expressing faith and the existence of supernatural forces. However,the French painting represents the earthly power and kingdom, while the sculpture delineates aheavenly kingdom with supernatural beings (Stokstad & Cothren, 2017).
