‘La Pieta’ 1499
‘David’ sculpure done by Michelangelo during 1501-1504
Michelangelo Buonarroti was born in Florence 1475 and he died in Rome in 1564. One of the main characters of the Italian Renaissance and he was one of the best artists. Some of his best and most important artworks was the “David” sculpture, “la Pieta” another important sculpture and the paintings that he did in the “Cappella Sistina”.In a demonstration of Michelangelo’s unique standing, he was the first Western artist whose biography was published while he was alive. He had been discovered at the age of 13 by Lorenzo de’ Medici who incharged him of many paintings.
I think that there are many connections between te Renaissance and the modern world because the renaissance was the innovative way of thinking that replaced the one of the middle ages. Sometimes this new way of thinking may be used also during the modern world because many things today are refered to things that happened during that period of history.
The Italian Renaissance is one of the most productive periods in the history of arts, when the most important masters had beem found in all the major fields painting, sculpture, and architecture.In Florence, in the first half of the fifteenth century, there were great innovators in all these fields, whose work marked a beginning of a new era in the history of art. These innovators included Masaccio in painting, Brunelleschi in architecture, and Donatello in sculpture.During the Renaissance art and science were closely connected because the art of painting profited by two fields of study that may be called scientific: anatomy, which made possible a more accurate representation of the human body, and mathematical perspective.
The Renaissance is a cultural and artisic movement of the European History which started in Florence at the end of the Medieval Ages and beginning of Late Middle Ages.The Renaissance saw revolutions in many intellectual pursuits, as well as social and political upheaval, it is perhaps best known for its artistic developments and the contributions of such polymaths as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, who inspired the term.The Renaissance began in Florence, Tuscany in the 14th century.People may think that the Renaissance is a cultural advance of the Medieval Ages instead seeing that is a period of pessimism and nostalgia for the classical age.
