The High Renaissance: Michelangelo Buonarotti (1475 -1564) • Doni Tondo (The Holy Family with the infant St. John the Baptist) c. 1506, tempera on panel, diameter 1.2m, Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence • David, 1504, Marble, height 4.34m, Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence Who was he? http://www.biography.com/people/michelangelo-9407628 A short introduction to his life

http://www.uffizi.org/artworks/doni-tondo-by-michelangelo/ Michelangelo, Doni Tondo (c. 1506) tempera on panel, Uffizi Gallery The group with the Virgin, Saint Joseph and the Child shows the twisting of the limbs and the realism of the muscles. Bright colours & lighting emphasise the sacred figures. The nudes in the background, who refer to the Classics, symbolise pagan mankind, the world before the coming of Christ; on the right the infant St John indicates the way, through baptism, from pagan to christian.

Background: Agnolo Doni was a rich cloth merchant in Florence (and a tondo is a round painting). It is thought he commissioned this painting when his first daughter was born. The tondo has a magnificent wooden frame, probably carved by members of the Tasso family. The five heads depict Jesus, two prophets and two sybils (What’s a sybil?*). The frame also includes the ‘coat of arms’ of the Doni and Strozzi families, because Agnolo was married to Maddalena Strozzi. *sibyl (sĭb`ĭl), in classical mythology, a prophetess. Things to think about: what do we do nowadays when a baby is born? How do we commemorate special occasions?
