St. Denis Cathedral This Cathedral was built over the tomb of St. Denis and was remade by Merovingah King. It was created around year 500 and is located in Paris, France. As you can see in the picture, this Cathedral has a lot of circular shapes and the windows and its unique size to it which I believe is the emphasis of this building. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilica_of_St_Denis http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=paris, Where it’s located+$ance&gs_upl=133611l136718l0l136837l15l12l1l0l0l0l227l1669l5.5.2l13l0&bav =on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=638&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0 x47e66e1f06e2b70f:0x40b82c3688c9460,Paris, +France&gl=us&ei=uRyrTuCHIarm0QGKj- HADw&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=image&resnum=1&ved=0CEkQ8gEw AA
Olavinlinna Castle This castle was built in 1475 and although the artist is unknown itwas founded by A Erik axelsson tott. it is also located in savolinna, ﬁnland. As you can see, this structure rough rocky texture balances out the castle as a wholebecause it is what makes it all stand out. http://www.cupola.com/images/bldgstru/medieval/olavin05.jpg http://maps.google.com/maps?

Madonna and child This piece of art was made by an artist named Giotto. It was created between 1266-1337. There are many diﬀerent locations of this piece of art one of the locations that is found is in San Domenico, Siena. In this piece of art as you can see there are diﬀerent colors used such as red, black, gold, and grey, I believe that the red colors bring out the http://www.historyforkids.org/learn/medieval/art/ picture which is the emphasis of it because it brings out everything.

As you can see in this art work there arelots of different green, blue, red, yellow colors and lines and differentabstract and unknown shapes but I think it’s very unique and in whichI believe all of them bring out the art works contrast as a whole piece. http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/works-of-art/38.171.2 Where it’s located http://www.portalestoria.net/armenia.htm
