What factors contributed to the development of the Venetian altarpiece between 1460-1505?
The focus on the essay must based between 1460-1505.

The essay is to be based on Venetian art during the Renaissance.
Need some sort of introduction about venice during this period and it emergence of altarpieces.
Needs some sort of explanation as to Why altarpieces were important in this particular period?
Who commissioned the altarpieces and who funded them and from what schools or councils?
Include factors for altarpieces such as Wealth of Venice,works of Bellini, Vivarini, Messina, Giorgione, Cima, polytichs and triptychs, narrative altarpieces
My particular interest of this period and works are works of Bellini, Vivarini, and Cima.
Examples I would like to be used:

Bellini – san zacceria altarpiece 1505 and s. giobbe – frari

Bellini – triptych – santa mari gloriosa de fran chapel of Pesaro of san benetto and Vivarini – triptych – bernardo

Bellini – sacra conversazione – s.s Giovanni ei paolo

Bellini – baptism of Christ – cima – baptism of Christ
Relationships between those by identifying prices, size, amount, for whom, narrative, symbolic, material, colour, use of space, perspective, use of the Madonna and the donors
I want to emphasize on the new emergence of creating Madonna as the central figure as a main factor to worshiping altarpieces and focusing by ending the note on san zacceria altarpiece.
As an argument or discussion, this is the part i struggled to establish, but I do take Vivarini and Bellini’s altarpieces a much more larger contribution and factor to this particular period and feel that Bellini was making big changes for the better in Venice. If this could be used in the discussion in comparison to the other artists I have mentioned and examples I mentioned then i think the essay will come together, but I will leave the ball in your court and make changes and suggestion as you go along so the essay has its own informed voice, critical analysis and academic writing
