Giotto di Bondone BACK
Giotto was the king of the proto-renaissance, he was the man who invented modern painting. He was a child prodigy and as the story goes he was discovered by his teacher while tending sheep and doodling realistic scenes on a rock. He was a keen entrepreneur and cornered the market on pigs' bristles and made fabulous brushes that made him rich. His two best known works are the frescoes in the church of St Francis in Assisi and the Arena Chapel in Padua. His figures show a awesome sense of place, a tangible three dimensionality, and express emotions. The Arena Chapel is one of the top five works in the western world.
An excerpt from Giotto: The Arena Chapel Frescoes
by James Stubblebine
Or again, Giotto can convey something very different in his treatment of the figure, as in The Betrothal of the Virgin . Perhaps the single most enchanting figure in the Arena Chapel is the Virgin in this scene. Demure yet smiling, she exudes a glow universally recognized as the particular quality of a bride. All this is confirmed by the harmonious lines of her white gown falling in a graceful train behind her. This lyrical mood persists in the representation of the Virgin in the next scene, The Return Home. Here again the beauty of the figure depends to a great extent on the flowing rhythms of the gown, enhanced now by the delicate sway of the Virgin as she moves along to the tune of the musicians and daintily lifts the drapery in front.

Giotto di Bondone
Giotto di Bondone (c. 1267 - 1337). Florentine painter and architect. Outstanding as a painter, sculptor, and architect, Giotto was recognized as the first genius of art in the Italian Renaissance. Giotto lived and worked at a time when people's minds and talents were first being freed from the shackles of medieval restraint. He dealt largely in the traditional religious subjects, but he gave these subjects an earthly, full-blooded life and force. The artist's full name was Giotto di Bondone. He was born about 1266 in the village of Vespignano, near Florence. His father was a small landed farmer. Giorgio Vasari, one of Giotto's first biographers, tells how Cimabue, a well-known Florentine painter, discovered Giotto's talents. Cimabue supposedly saw the 12-year-old boy sketching one of his father's sheep on a flat rock and was so impressed with his talent that he persuaded the father to let Giotto become his pupil. Another story is that Giotto, while apprenticed to a wool merchant in Florence, frequented Cimabue's studio so much that he was finally allowed to study painting. The earliest of Giotto's known works is a series of frescoes (paintings on fresh, still wet plaster) on the life of St. Francis in the church at Assisi. Each fresco depicts an incident; the human and animal figures are realistic and the scenes expressive of the gentle spirit of this patron saint of animals. In about 1305 and 1306 Giotto painted a notable series of 38 frescoes in the Arena Chapel in Padua. The frescoes illustrate the lives of Jesus Christ and of the Virgin Mary. Over the archway of the choir is a scene of the Court of Heaven, and a Last Judgment scene faces it on the entrance wall. The compositions are simple, the backgrounds are subordinated, and the faces are studies in emotional expression.

Giotto was born in poverty in the countryside near Florence , the son of Bondone, a peasant, and was himself a shepherd. Most authors believe that Giotto was directly his real name, and not an abbreviation of Ambrogio ( Ambrogiotto ) or Angelo ( Angiolotto The legend says (as reported by Giorgio Vasari in his biographies, derived from Ghiberti 's Commentari ) that at the age of 10, while attending the sheep, he used to draw on the rocks with a chalk. Cimabue saw him drawing a sheep, so natural and so perfect that he immediately asked his father if he could bring Giotto with him to let him study art, and Giotto's career would have started in Cimabue's bottega His art was extremely innovative, and is commonly considered as a precursor of that evolution which was to lead, shortly after, to the explosion of the Italian Rinascimento He treated the religious themes (quite exclusively used in medieval art) with a new spirit, rendering them with a clear freshness and an unexpected liveliness, and many critics talk about a "human emotion" as the most peculiar feature of his works. He received commissions for many works throughout Italy, and became a good friend of the king of

Giotto di Bondone
Giotto di Bondone was born in about 1266 in a village near Florence, and died in Milan January 8, 1337. He was a Florentine painter and architect. He is noted not only for his own work, the course in Europe. Cimabue saw him when he was a young shepard lad drawing one of his sheep on a piece of smooth slate with a pointed stone. Cimabue there upon took the lad with him and instructed him. The story is pretty funny. Most of Giott's art was found in Assisi. Giotto used facial expression to show what people were thinking. One of the most famous painting is called L'incontro di Giacchino e Anna alla Porta Aurea. (1304-06)

Cuenta la leyenda que, siendo pastor de un rebaño, fue descubierto por Cimabue gracias a que dibujaba con rara maestría un árbol con un pedazo de carbón sobre una roca. El caso es que recibió educación pictórica formal. En la época, la Pintura italiana estaba fuertemente influida por el arte bizantino, por lo que era tremendamente hierática y poco naturalista. Giotto empezó a trabajar con volúmenes y profundidades. Aunque su trabajo aún es un tanto tosco, debido al desconocimiento de las leyes de la perspectiva, Giotto consigue algunos efectos de profundidad que pasman a sus contemporáneos, y que abren el camino al arte del Quattrocento.

Giotto di Bondone
A Florentine painter, and founder of the Italian school of painting, b. most probably, in 1266 (not 1276), in the village of Vespignano near Florence, in the valley of the Mugello; d. at Milan, 8 Jan., 1337. Very little is known of his early history. Vasari relates that Cimabue, rambling one day in the neighborhood of Colle, saw a young shepherd lad drawing one of his sheep on a piece of smooth slate with a pointed stone, and that Cimabue thereupon took the lad with him and instructed him. The story is a pretty bit of fancy. There is no reason for believing that Giotto was ever a shepherd. It is possible that his father was a peasant; if so, he was in easy circumstances and certainly a freeholder. A document dated 1320 styles him such an epithet would not be applied to a man in straitened circumstances. As a matter of fact nothing is known of Giotto until he was thirty years old. This unfortunate gap in his personal history robs us of a story which would be of intense interest as showing the growth of his genius, and reduces us to the merest conjectures. However, without in any way detracting from Giotto's pre-eminence in Italian art, it is impossible to accord him that quasi-miraculous, providential importance that Florentine nationalism soon raised to a kind of dogma in the history of art. According to Vasari he arose in a barbarous age and straightway revealed a fully developed art to a wondering world. This is not credible. The thirteenth century, the century of the great cathedrals and of the French school of carving whose numerous pupils were met with in all parts of

Christus Rex et Redemptor Mundi GIOTTO (Ambrogio Bondone, detto) 1267 - 1337 SEARCH THIS SITE Giotto has become the symbol of a profound renewal in the history of Western figurative arts, and of the first radical renewal since ancient Greece.
"He converted the art of painting from Greek to Latin and brought in the modern era" - this is Cennino Cennini's synthesis fifty years after Giotto's death, underscoring the revolutionary character of Giotto's painting.
Born in 1267, he must have been active before the last decade of thirteenth century.
Giotto worked for the Bardi's and the Peruzzi's, the Florentine families who owned the most important European banks of the thirteenth century. He worked for the Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi, which was the most important church of Christianity at the time; he worked for the Pope, for the richest and most influential citizen of Padova (Scrovegni), for the chapel and main altar of the Basilica of San Pietro in Rome, for the king of Napoli and for Azzone Visconti, the master of Milano. At a time when the exceptional Italian economic expansion turned every Italian city in a cultural center with specific characteristics and a potential artistic "school", Giotto placed himself in a super-regional position, becoming a universal reference point.
If we look at the contents of his artistic revolution, we have to agree that the first manifestations are present in the decoration of the Assisi Upper Basilica. These frescos reveal the mind and, in part, the hand of the genius who created the frescos of Scrovegni Chapel in Padua.

Estilo: Renacimiento Italiano Trecento
No contamos con excesivos datos fiables sobre la vida de Giotto di Bondone, ni la fecha de su nacimiento, ni cuáles fueron sus maestros, ni siquiera la datación exacta de muchas de sus obras. Lo que sí conocemos, por las crónicas de sus contemporáneos, es la gran revolución que supuso su nueva concepción artística, que se puede considerar como precursora de las innovaciones que cambiarán la marcha de la pintura occidental, desde el humanismo del Renacimiento hasta el siglo XX. Giotto nace hacia 1267 al norte de Florencia, en el valle de Mugello, en la aldea de Vicchio. Cuenta la leyenda que por allí pasó en la década de 1280, el gran maestro italiano Cimabue bizantinizante que dominaba la pintura hasta ese momento. Giotto era llamado de todas las partes de Italia requerido por los personajes más poderosos, no sólo órdenes eclesiásticas, también mercaderes, banqueros y comercianes. Tanto al fresco como en tabla, Giotto renovó el lenguaje figurativo de toda su época. De los primeros años del Trecento , son algunas de las tablas más interesantes del maestro italiano. Algunos crucifijos y retablos con el motivo tradicional de la Maestà, esto es, la Virgen y el Niño rodeado de ángeles, son buenas muestras de su revolucionario estilo. Giotto rompía con la tradicional iconografía de Cristos y Madonas, hasta el momento con caracteres intemporales, para acercarlos a la realidad y cotidianeidad del hombre de su tiempo. Ambos temas tomaban unas connotaciones de tipo naturalista que fácilmente eran identificadas por el espectador: sus gestos, sus reacciones, sus poses, sus modelados, su corporeidad material..., en una palabra, Giotto dotaba de rasgos humanos y verosímiles a las figuras sagradas, acercando la Divinidad a la cotidianeidad de su tiempo y al espectador moderno. Tanto esta concepción expresiva como la creación de un espacio en profundidad serán los aspectos arquetípicos del arte de Giotto, que desarrollará convenientemente en los sucesivos encargos.

    Giotto di Bondone (
    Considered one of the greatest early Italian painters, Florentine painter and architect Giotto can also be considered the founder of the main tradition of Western painting because of the way he broke away from Byzantine tradition and introduced the concern with an illusionistic pictorial space. His subjects attained a sense of solidity, reality and mass since which has never been entirely lost to painting. During his lifetime Giotto was recognised for the momentous quality of his work and praised lavishly by the likes of Dante and Boceaccio and Cennino Cennini. In 1400, Cennini summed up Giotto's stylistic revolution in the words "Giotto translated the art of painting from Greek to Latin." There is considerable scholarly debate over which works can be attributed to Giotto. The main panel for St Francis Receiving the Stigmata from the church of San Francesco in Pisa (1290s?) is generally considered to be Giotto's work while the designs of the three small scenes were borrowed from Assisi and painted by the St Francis Master's assistants.
