Italian Renaissance (pt. 24)

Realism continued to develop during the Renaissance, and along the way you get works like this on by Andrea Mantegna, the Lamentation Over the Dead Christ.
Doesn't Christ's body seem to extend from the painting, as if we could reach out and actually touch His feet—realism to an almost uncanny level.  And of course the patrons are seen on the left.
