A continuity between classical and modern art
If at first glance there does not seem to be anything in common between the two frescoes by Raffaello and the painting by Mondrian, a more careful analysis reveals some interesting affinities.
The comparison help us highlighting themes of universal character common to the three works and demonstrate that, mutatis mutanti, the twentieth-century painting can represent a synthesis of the two sixteenth-century frescoes.
At a distance of four centuries, the three artworks speak to us of substantial aspects of human existence. They certainly do so in a very different way because in the meantime everything has changed in the lives of men.
