FEATURED ARTIST

MASACCIO
1401–1428
ITALY

The florentine artist is regarded as the first great Italian painter of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance.

Masaccio profoundly influenced the art of painting and is considered to have begun the Early Italian Renaissance in painting. According to Vasari, all "most celebrated" Florentine "sculptors and painters" studied his frescoes extensively in order to "learn the precepts and rules for painting well." He transformed the direction of Italian painting, moving it away from the idealizations of Gothic art and, for the first time, presenting it as part of a more profound, natural, and humanist world.

Here is how Midjourney sees Masaccio's style.

by Masaccio --ar 9:16
Masaccio's style is great for early Renaissance paintings and frescoes. Adding "by Masaccio" to your prompts tends to render smooth shapes and surfaces and clean, monochromatic colors, often adding canvas texture and crackles.

The style is perfect for medieval plots, stern classical character portraits, fairy tale creatures, and religious images like icons or church murals.
