Humanism - humanism; placing the study of human nature at the center of interests.- The main idea of humanism was to captivate the idea of humans and their values.- Life was no longer considered just a pilgrimage to God. - Renaissance artists affected the Renaissance by focusing on the ability of humanity. - They focused on praising the human body and ability, because Man, during the Renaissance, was supposedly capable of anything.- Humanism can be seen in paintings created by Renaissance artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Art and Artists During the Renaissance Era

Secularism-Secularism: Artists turned away from religion more, as they praised themselves and their abilities.- As Secularism became more popular during the Renaissance, people grew to be the same size as saints in paintings.- Saints also began to look like ordinary people. - Halos became faint in paintings and eventually disappeared during the Renaissance.- Saints occupied the same landscape in art as ordinary people in Renaissance paintings; the landscape was earth rather than of heaven.

Leonardo da VinciWriter, Mathematician, Inventor, Artist (1452–1519)- He is most known for creating the most famous painting from any era, "Mona Lisa",- He began his career in the 1460s as a teenager when he worked as an apprentice.- His first ever piece of signed artwork is called "The Feast of Santa Maria delle Nueve" in 1473 which is considered by many to be one of the first landscape paintings ever created.- This began a popular theme of painting landscapes which had never been done before.- He later moved to Milan to work for their duke.- 1495- He created one of his more famous paintings "The Last Supper" which took years and brought artists great fame, him being the leader of Italian painting.- 1503- Leonardo de Vinci returned to Florence were he began the Mona Lisa.- Leonardo's interests were so broad, that he usually failed to finish what he started. This resulted in him completing only about six works in these 17 years, including "The Last Supper" and "The Virgin on the Rocks," and he left dozens of projects unfinished or unrealized.- While not painting, he invented the parachute, ornithopter (flying machine), diving suit, anemometer (wind speed measurer)- Not only was he a brilliant artist and painter, but he also started new advances and invetions taken for granted today.- He tried to bring out true average human emotion instead of focusing on outward appearance.- He also began the first studies of human anatomy.- He was devoted to proving that science and art can be combined to create new technologies- According to Da Vinci, the two were not any different.

MichelangeloPainter, Sculptor, Architect, Poet (1475–1564)- He began to show an interest in art at age 12, when he became an apprentice.- Later at the age of 13, he set out to become a sculptor, under the wing of Donatello.- Michelangelo brought the idea of sculpting humans bodies.- He was a great leader in the Italian Renaissance.Accomplishments- His greatest glory, painting the Sistine Chapel, began in 1508, and was completed in 1512. In the beginning, Michelangelo was to paint twelve pictures of the apostles around the outside of the ceiling. Instead of doing so, he used the central area of the ceiling to paint the history of the Old Testament. - Beginning in 1491, Michelangelo carved the Madonna of the Stairs. - Next was the Pieta; which was started in 1498 and finished in 1500. - He began Doni Tondo in 1503, taking him two years to complete.- He is widely famous for being one of the first to begin sculpting the human body.

The origins of Renaissance art can be traced to Italy in the late 13th and early 14th centuries.

Italian artists saw themselves as reawakening to the ideals and achievements of classic Roman culture.

While medieval society viewed artists as servants or craftspeople, Renaissance artists were viewed as trained intellectuals, and their art reflected this new value

Growth Of the Renaissance- The Reniassance occured between the 1320s and 1600s.- The Era had a growth due to a new movement called humanism which encouraged people to use their talents in the arts to show their beliefs and opinions.- The Renaissance reached its peak in the 1500s when Italy became an ideal living space for artists, authors, and philosophers.- They would move to Italy for a short period for inspiration, then return to their hometowns which helped the spreading of this movement.- By the end of the Renaissance in the 1600s, many believe the way Europe was transformed was through people such as artists and writers.
