The Renaissance

Renaissance “rebirth”. It was a golden age in the arts, literature, and sciences. New interest in old stuff, like Greece & Rome
Where did the Renaissance Start? Began in Italy Later spread north to Germany and England
The Italian Renaissance Interested in human achievement (instead of religious or spiritual achievement) The figures in their artwork looked like Greek or Roman gods, i.e. perfect
Humanism? Curious about life in the present. Emphasis on the achievements of the individual. Examined worldly subjects that the ancient Greeks and Romans had studied. Hoped to use ancient learning to increase knowledge about their own times
Art of Middle Ages No perspective No proportion Many religious themes. Shows how central religion was.
Renaissance Art Everyday scenes. More realistic.
