Avery Shepherd 9/23/16 B00643866 SLO Assignment #2 The two paintings “Madonna in a Church” and ‘Madonna of the Harpies” have many sim- ilarites, but also many differences if one pays close enough attention. The time periods in which  these two pieces of art were painted are one of those differences. The 15th century, when  “Madonna in a Church” was painted, was considered the bridge between the Late Middle Ages  and the Early Renaissance. The artwork of this time period was being developed into what  some consider the greatest artwork of all time. It became more and more realistic and had much more detail than had ever been seen. To sum it up, the 15th century was a time of great  change. The fall of the Byzantine empire caused much turmoil and ulitmately caused the need  for a new trade route, which initiated new contact with different countries and empires. This was  also the time of the end of the Hundred Years’ War, in which France took the victory. The Hun- dred Years’ War caused great transition in the style of war and troops, making the military of  both countries much more sophisticated and organized. Aside from the politics, the social as- pects were changing aswell. Great artists like Jan Van Eyck, Filippo Brunelleschi, Leonardo da

    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.
