 Nikolai Nikolaevich Ge (or Ghe, sometimes spelled Gay, Russian: Íèêîëàé Íèêîëàåâè÷ Ãå; 27 February [O.S. 15 February] 1831 – 13 June [O.S. 1 June] 1894) was a Russian realist painter famous for his works on historical and religious motifs. The fate of many of his works remains a mystery. At the end of his life Ge bequeathed all of his works to his Swiss benefactor Beatrice de Vattville (Russian: Áåàòðèñà äå Âàòòâèëëü, âëàäåëèöà çàìêà Æýíæýí â êàíòîíå Âî â Øâåéöàðèè) in ex for a small rent during his lifetime. She died in 1952 but none of Ge's work were found in her castle.

Giotto di Bondone (c. 1267 – January 8, 1337), better known simply as Giotto, was an Italian painter and architect Florence in the late Middle Ages. He is generally considered the first in a line of great artists who contributed to the Italian Renaissance. Giotto's contemporary Giovanni Villani wrote that Giotto was "the most sovereign master of painting in his time, who drew all his figures and their postures according to nature. And he was given a salary by the Comune of Florence in virtue of his talent and excellence." The later 16th century biographer Giorgio Vasari says of him: "He made a decisive break with the crude traditional Byzantine style, and brought to life the great art of painting as we know it today, introducing the technique of drawing accurately life, which had been neglected for more than two hundred years."
