  Renaissance

 Throughout the Middle Ages man lived in fear of God and within the omnipresence of the Church. Art generally showed the heaves and saints, and bore little relation to what was happening on earth. From the fourteenth century, however, man began to realize his importance and effect on the world. This rebirth [or ‘renaissance’] was reflected in art: figures became more life, space became more real and the Christian story began to be told from a human point of view. As the decades continued artist were able to recreate the world on panels, frescos and altarpieces with increasing ease. Beginning with the stylized works of Giotto and Masaccio, the Renaissance culminated in the monumental creations of Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo. Although generally associated with Italy, the Renaissance also developed independently north of the Alps in Germany and Flanders. While Italian Renaissance artists laid emphasis on perspective and the illusion of space, Flemish and German artists were more interested in a detailed, jewel-like depiction of the world around them.
