This blog tries to examine the genre used by many Renaissance time artists . These painters used to paint pictures that consisted of two incompatible narratives – one which is exposed and considered widely accepted, while the other is usually hidden and provocative.
The irony is even bigger when noticing that some of these artists were hired by the Church for its finest projects. Rafael and Giotto both made fabulous works that were meant to develop and pass the church’s narrative, but instead, they kept little secrets between the lines.
Finding the hidden narrative isn’t always an easy things. It sometimes takes to flip the picture upside down, exploring old erasing or looking at it carefully. Thanks to the Photoshop working space, I was able to research pictures with many kinds of different perspectives. This control over the pictures resulted with some great findings, which allowed me to understand them and enjoy a lot more of their art.
