Different artists have developed the arts of Madonna and child, which have special features and pass applicable information concerning the Virgin and Jesus Christ. Some of the people who have developed the objects that portray Madonna and child encompass Duccio and a follower of Rogier Van der Weyden. An examination of the works of arts that the artists mentioned above developed indicates that they supposed to pass critical statistics to the viewers and the society members the use of images of non secular personalities. The painting of Madonna and Child that Duccio developed portrays the intimacy between the Virgin and the Christ. Notably, the picture indicates baby Christ extending his hands to the Virgin whilst the latter holds him. The painting of Madonna and child, which Duccio composed also have some burnt edges thus indicating that the artist held a candle or a flame at the bottom of the work of art during the painting processes. Furthermore, the image of Madonna and Child that Duccio developed has a parapet at the bottom of the frame. Indeed, the work of art that Duccio developed has various aesthetic values. Specifically, the tenderly draped robe that Madonna wore and the piece of cloth at the foot of the Christ are attractive. Duccio's painting of Madonna and child also portrays a fine detail on the inner layer of the Virgin's veil. It is also evident that the artist mentioned above used distinct colors for the Virgin and Christ's garments.

A follower of Van der Weyden also painted an image of the virgin and baby Christ, and the work of art had unique observable features. One of the features that one can observe from the work of art that Weyden's follower developed is the Virgin holding a flower and baby Christ sitting on the laps. The painting by Weyden's follower also depicts an image of Virgin and Christ gazing at the flower, which the former holds at a distant as the latter is struggling to reach for the flower. The work of art by the follower of Weyden also depicts the Virgin wearing a golden-brown robe while the Christ wears a white garment. Also, it is evident from the painting that Weyden's follower developed that the Virgin holds the flower using her right hand and baby Christ is also trying to pick the flower using his right hand. Besides, the personalities in the work of art by Weyden's follower are looking away from one another thus indicating they are looking at the same object.

An examination of the works of art Duccio and the follower of Weyden developed reveals various similarities. The first similarity in the Madonna and Child by the arts mentioned above is that both the paintings depict the Virgin embracing Christ thus indicating the emotions Madonna exhibits towards the baby. Also, one can observe that in both paintings, Christ is stretching his hands to hold something. For instance, in the work of art by Duccio Christ has extended his hands towards the Virgin's veil while in the painting Weyden's follower developed, the Christ is stretching his hand to hold a flower the Virgin is holding. Weyden's member's painting and Duccio's work of art also shows the Madonna and the child wearing robes that are luminous. The works of arts described above are also similar because they both have an image of Christ who is barefoot and the Virgin is gazing at something. One can observe that the Madonna and child the artists mentioned above developed critically show the manner in which religious figures, such as the Virgin, loved and cared for the Christ.

As previously indicated in this essay, the works of arts by Duccio and the follower of Weyden have various similarities. However, one can also observe some contrasting elements in the paintings that the artists above developed. Notably, the picture that Duccio developed had a golden background while the follower of Weyden used a dark background for the Madonna and Christ. Also, it is evident that Duccio used parapet at the bottom of his painting while the follower of Weyden did not use any unique element at the lower part of the work of art he developed. An analysis of the paintings by Duccio and the follower of Weyden also show dissimilarities concerning the objects that feature in the pictures. For instance, the works of art by the follower of Weyden has an image of the Virgin with Christ on her lap and a flower on her right hand whereas the painting by Duccio exhibits only the image of the Christ sitting on the Virgin’s lap. Also, unlike Duccio’s Madonna and child, which depict a kid who is gazing towards the Virgin, the painting by Weyden’s follower has the image of the Christ facing away from the virgin.

The works of arts by Duccio and the follower of Weyden help in showing that artists can paint unique images that have observable features, which significantly compare and contrast each other.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
