AHA 1120: HISTORY OF WESTERN ART; II                 Prof. Land Topic 3: The Early Renaissance in Italy: Naturalism The Renaissance artist’s interest in the sculpture of Antiquity inspired in him a desire to make  works of art that resemble nature.  This pursuit of verisimilitude or naturalism is nowhere better  expressed than in Leon Battista Alberti’s treatise   On Painting   (1435):   “The function of the  painter is to draw with lines and paint in colors on a surface any given bodies in such a way that  [. . .] what you see represented appears in relief [i. e., appears to be three-dimensional] and just  like those bodies.” Giotto di Bondone (1267– 1337). ( Proto-Renaissance) Lamentation. fresco.  Scrovegni (or Arena) Chapel, Padua. 1305-6.
