Thursday & Friday we will begin a study of the Renaissance. The Renaissance began in the 14th century in central & northern Italy with Florence being the most important city. We will discuss the origins and ideas central to the Renaissance as well as the major artists & writers. We will also examine in groups individual paintings looking for ideas & themes common to the Renaissance. Later we will examine how the Renaissance spread to northern Europe and the impact it had there. See below for links to the Powerpoint and assignments. Monday and Tuesday you will continue to examine the Renaissance and you will organize in groups to investigate Renaissance art.
