Renaissance Artists Were Really Terrible At Drawing Babies

{13 Comments}

The Renaissance artists repeatedly did something that we wonder about today – they painted babies like miniaturized old men. This was probably due to the fact that the they didn’t have a concept of childhood they same way we do now, so in some 15th and 16th century works, it looks like the painter never laid eyes on a baby.

    The artists were terrible at drawing people too. Or, maybe that’s the way people and babies really looked.

    But those artists are still a million times better than the average EatLiver visitor.

    In the Middle Ages, patrons asked the artists to include their likeness in the paintings.

      If I would look like this, I would not like to have my face be seen centuries later. As a matter of fact – that’s why I never allow photos of me to be taken.

    What’s with the “eh… forget about it…” expression and gesture by the kid getting circumcized? ouch!

    Maybe Renaissance babies were just very very ugly. Or even moderately good looking babies were burnt as devils in the market square

    It was on purpose. It symbolizes that Jesus came as a fully developed person into this world.
