Angela Wilborn Intro to Art  “Christ Sustained by Angels”  1524-1527 Rosso Fiorentino The painting “Christ surrounded by Angels” is important because of religious  iconographic point of view.  Rosso uses complementary and Analogous colors in his paintings. The painting’s  colors are not really too important and actually a secondary in Rosso’s artwork. Both the  Renaissance and Mannerism time period, have more secondary colors. The colors are  calm and helps to show a tranquil time.  What stands out while the colors take secondary is the meaning of the artwork.  “Christ Sustained by Angels” was made to represent the day when the angels, with the  light of life lifted the body of Christ, that was about to resurrect from death. You can tell

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
