This is a new request which hasn't been taken on by any user.

I decided to compare two grand artworks: Giotto’s “Madonna and Child” and Raphael’s “Sistine Madonna.” Both of the above mentioned paintings have something in common; yet, there are differences between them.
The painting “Madonna and Child” was created by Italian master Giotto during the medieval period. The artist used the method of tempera on the panel while creating this painting was tempera on panel. “Madonna and Child” relates to the genre of religious paintings. If to look at this painting, one can see that the colors are moderate and calm. Soft shadows surround Mary and child. One can feel the weight and volume of their bodies and see that they are grave and concentrated. “Madonna and Child” became a new trend in naturalistic art because the author tried to show relations between the mother and the child and their behavior as close to usual life as it was possible.
“Sistine Madonna” was created by Raphael in the period of Renaissance by means of “oil on canvas” painting method. It is also a religious painting that has a similar to “Madonna and Child” subject. The main forms of the picture are combinations of pyramids while the main colors are white, red, green, and gold. They are bright and joyful. Young Mary looks innocent and confused. Despite the similarity of skin, hair and color of eyes, Mary and the child do not look similar as opposed to mother and the child on Giotto’s painting. Also one of the main differences between “Sistine Madonna” and “Madonna and Child” is a more grown-up appearance of little Jesus: his manner to sit and his view look as if he is a grown-up person in the body of a child.
If to speak about the level of impression after looking at these both paintings and to define which attracts me more as a viewer, I can surely say that both of them are equally great and magically attractive. Both of them leave an unforgettable impression. They provoke contrasting feelings, and yet they do not differ in their strength and deepness.
