Today, in the class of Social Sciences we have done several things. First, Paqui has explained how to comment on the journals and she has reminded the people who haven´t accepted the invitation for the blog.
After this, Paqui has remembered the things learned yesterday and then, we have started correcting the last part of the schueme of the Renaissance art meanwhile Paqui has added others important details:
Sculptures of some artists:
·Donatello: Il Zuccone, Equestrian Statue of Gatamelatta.
·Michelangelo Buonarrotti: David ( his most famous sculpture of 5.17 meters long and 5.5 tonne which represents David before his confrontement with Goliath), Pietà ( which had several conflicts because the Virgin looks younger than Jesus) Tomb of Medici and Moses.
When we have seen that Moses had horns, Paqui has told an anecdote: the translator of the Bible from Hebrew to Latin, Saint Jerome, made a mistake in the paragraph that tells the moment when Moses came back from Mount Sinai. The mistake that he made was in the word Karan, which has two meanings in Hebrew; 'brightness' and 'horn'. This part suggests that Moses' head was surrounded by some kind of halo, and Jerome wrote 'horns' instead of 'halo'; and this is why Moses is represented with horns.
-Features: the main subjects were religious and mythological, the use of perspective and drawings were more important than colours.
· Massacio, Hole Trinity and Tribute Money.
·Piero della Francesa, Constantine's Dream and the Flagellation of Christ.
·Botticelli: Primavera and the Birth of Venus.
·Leonardo Da Vinci: Mona Lisa, the Last Supper and the Virgin of the rocks.
Paqui has explained why the drawings of people (man or woman) of Da Vinci
have femenine characteristics.
·Rafael: Madonnae and School of Athens.
·Michelangelo: Frescoes of the Sistine Chapel.
·Titian (Tiziano): belonged to the Venetian school. Charles V in Mühlberg and the Venus of Urbino.
While we were correcting the scheme, we have copied some new words on the glossary:
-On horseback: a caballo
-Cloth folds: pliegues del vestido
-Golden calf: becerro de oro
- Dawn: amanecer
-Foreground: primer plano
Finally, the bell has rung and we have gone to the breaktime.
