• "The Story of Joseph" by Biagio d'Antonio
• Tempera and gold leaf on panel
- "The Story of Joseph" is a tempera and gold leaf painting on a 26 ¼” high and 58 ¾” wide panel, painted by a Renaissance artist, Biagio D’Antonio. The painting was completed in 1485 in the Renaissance period, where artists were studying the Ancient Romans and were incorporating classicism and humanism in their art works. "The Story of Joseph" has many narratives throughout the panel; however, the element of emphasis or the focal point of the entire painting is in the foreground of the picture. This is the scene where Joseph’s brothers have brought his bloody cloths to show their father, Jacob, as proof that Joseph has been killed. In this particular scene, it is also evident that Biagio uses lines, color, value, and scale to convey the characteristics of a Renaissance painting.
