The Influence of Renaissance Period

Art and Architecture

We cannot forget history especially when it comes to the aesthetics and artistic endeavors of the renaissance period that flaunts a whole new chapter of interest. The Renaissance phrase means “rebirth”, it references an era of classical subjects in the world of great artists from Roman Empire and Greek world. It is all present in the proof of nude and mythological statues of renaissance subjects in architecture and craftsmanship.

The Renaissance artwork demarcates an era of renewed interest in education and the world of art, paintings and sculptures. The philosophical approach towards life and humanitarian principles is very realistic and grounded. It often carried a message of improved literacy, the growing enthusiasm in education throughout Europe. It had an impact from religion mainly Christianity and we often find the subjects influenced by it.
