Assumption of the Virgin

Assumption of  the Virgin (Assunta) was painted by Italian artist Titian between 1516 and 1518, material: plate paint, storage place: Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in Venice. This was a religious painting based on the Bible. The painter gave full play to the imagination, and boldly possessed this complicated theme- assumption: the virgin opened her arms with swaying skirt; surrounded by the small angels and she flied to the sky. This work had a strong Mannerist style which was romantic and beautiful with strong form characteristics, vivid and delicate characters. The piety of the virgin and the little angel's lovely action constituted the world of heaven lack of human touch. The Bible did not clearly point out the assumption of the virgin. However, the church repeatedly the Bible was the final basis of signal processing. It could be said that the church was reflecting the final relationship of Christian and Christ (the resurrected Christ was the typical Christian which was the real human at the end) as well as the perfect relationship that the virgin and Christ completed and declared the end of signal processing. The virgin tasted the realm (the close relationship with Christ) that Christian was able to achieve at the end in a superior way.

This was a huge mural with magnificent momentum, depicting the sacred moment of the assumption with a strong religious color. In the painting, people with different dynamic motions but the same devout attitude standing on the ground send the virgin. The middle was the virgin dressed in red, who was surrounded by a group of angels. Above her, it was God with angels. This was an early piece of artwork of Titian, with solemn composition and delicate depiction.
