Overview

During the early Renaissance, which had its source in Italy and its hub in Florence, culture and the arts underwent a radical renewal that gradually spread through the rest of Europe. Interest in science broadened to include investigation of nature and man through the study of anatomy, the development of new technologies, and a harmonious alliance of the major arts. Once known as the “mechanical arts,” these humanist studies have come to be called “liberal,” a reflection of pride in the now-recognized intellectual faculties of the artist. Among the great artists that made the period so dazzling are Masaccio, Donatello, Brunelleschi, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael.
