During the early Renaissance period (14th to 16th century AD), artists were at the forefront of redefining every aspect of human development, marking an unprecedented shift for human civilisation.
Their paintings were a clear break from the past in portraying Biblical stories. The Old Masters portrayed human predicament with unmatched intensity. Their subjects were endowed with movement, dynamism and emotion never before seen in earlier paintings.
Do Renaissance artists have a message for us today? How do we live differently in the light of their message?
These questions are the starting point for the author as he interprets the paintings in today’s context. The book contains 30 paintings most of them from the Renaissance period. Every one of these paintings provides an important reflection that challenges you to live to the full and to live audaciously.
