TheChurch had more use for his fingers
than for his creative ability. It is probable that he advanced light-and-shade.
In the drawing it was not so good as that shown in the Roman andPompeian
frescos. A new collection of Judaic art has been recently opened
in the Louvre. That it strongly affected Italy is a very apparent
fact. They had graceof line and motion and all the truth to nature
that decorationrequired. White and purple are also used to define
flesh, hair, and white objects. TheChurch had more use for his fingers
than for his creative ability. Again themotives seem trifling, but
again advancing technical power is shown. In the larger pieces thecomposition
was rather rambling and disjointed, and the color harsh. He was
undoubtedly a superior man technically. This can be traced in the
Roman andPompeian frescos. After that the corrupted Italian art
once more came to thefront. The Christian idea made hasteslowly,
and at the start it was weighed down with many paganisms.
Their interest was chiefly centred
in thehuman figure. Humanity andactual Greek life came in for its
share. All thefrescos, mosaics, and altar-pieces had a decorative
motive in theircoloring and setting. The military life ofthe Empire
had begun to give way to the monastic and feudal life ofthe Church.
After that date come the more importantnames of artists mentioned
by the ancient writers. There was evidently anadvance technically,
but some decline in the true spirit of art.
