September 8, 2009 Baptisimal Font, Siena – various artists o Donatello, Feast of Herod, from Baptisimal Faont at Siena c. 1425 Begins to use perspective as well Several vanishing points Overlapping – several rooms shown – kitchen people aren’t aware of whats going on Radical: emotion Pushes everything off to the edges really daring there is nothing in the middle On the right – daughter is still dancing – clothing flowing – continuous narrative about the story about the daughter dancing and bribing Herod to get the head of John the Baptist Bruneleschi is given credit for one point perspective Alberti – writes it down Donatello’s St. Mark in niche at Orsanmichele Florence, 1411-1413 o Device of the ancient world being used = contrapasto: counterpoised meaning weight shift – one engaged leg one leg at liberty, making an s curve with the body. Effect – it gives life to the body, there is a potential for motion like the figure is about to step off
