One of Giotto’s 38 frescoes in the Scrovegni is Lamentation – mourning the death of Jesus Christ. What was especially striking in the Middle Ages is that Giotto broke away from his contemporary way of portraying anatomically accurate human bodies. Instead of displaying such factual acuity, Giotto’s works are appealing to human emotions. The smooth combination of pastel colors and rich facial expressions are essential in creating that sensation.
