- Museum Educator
Dive deeply into works in the Renaissance and Mannerist collections to learn how artists used light and composition to move away from complete naturalism to stylistic representation. Notice how the central image in Raphael’s Madonna and Child with Book and Jacopo Bassano’s The Flight into Egypt is the same, but the figures, landscapes and movements all come together to create two very different scenes.
