First of all, I have to apologize for posting this two days late, but I have a great excuse! ....I completely forgot, hahaha. Anyway, the first picture is Da Vinci's Virgin and Child with Saint Anne. I feel as though this painting well represents pre-Romantic thinking, as well that of the Renassiance. Da Vinci, although it is a religious painting, still places on emphasis on humanity. Mary is far more illuminated than Saint Anne or even Jesus. The light makes her appear as though she is almost glowing, as opposed to the dark foreground. Also, quite obviously, aspects of nature and the outdoors are put in merely as something to fill the space. I don't mean it was just carelessly painted, I mean, it's DA VINCI. However, the focus is far more on Mary, Jesus and Saint Anne as opposed to the scene aroudn them.
The next picture is of "The Kiss" by Francesco Hayez. This perfectly captures Romantic thinking. In contrast to Da Vinci's painting, where the figures are stately and appear to be quite calm, this picture is the opposite. It captures two people embracing for what appears to be quite a passionate kiss. This painting is entirely about the spontaneity of emotions, it's main point is too capture the "reality" of feelings. People don't think about love, usually anyway, they just act upon as they are moved to.
