Color in Justinian and his Attendants


Justinian and his Attendants was made during the 547 AD. It depicts Justinian in the center with his military and his personal clergymen. The Clergymen are a body of men, set apart by due ordination, the service of God, in the Christian church. The painting was made at a church the church of San Vitale, Ravenna. This artwork shows how primary colors, like green and yellow,  when mixed it makes a secondary color known as yellow green which could also be a shade but shades don’t have a mixture of both colors combined together. The purple and the yellow complement are called complementary colors. The green makes the yellow stand out and it makes it vibrant. The painting also provides us with a asymmetrical balance by having one side wear white and the other wearing purple and knights. The painting is also proportionate everything looks like it actually would look if it was right in front of you.
