Masaccio's frescoes were the first masterpieces of Early Renaisance art. He mastered the laws of perspective and could create the illusion of three dimensions, leading to a new, realistic style.

Filippo Brunelleschi was an architect who used both his mathematical and artistic skills to create the church San Lorenzo in Florence. He also rediscovered the classical principles of linear- perspective construction. These principles helped Renaissance artists create realistic imagery.

Leonardo da Vinci was an artist, scientist, inventor, and visionary who became known as the "Renaissance Man."He mastered realistic painting and even dissected human bodies to get a better idea of how we function.
