Art Images at Lebrecht: The Renaissance – The Rebirth of Classical Thinking

Art Images at Lebrecht provides a wide-ranging resource for Renaissance art. In late 14th century Italy, the Renaissance saw the rebirth of Classical humanist thinking. Lasting until the 17th century, the Renaissance provided a bridge between the Medieval and the modern world. Alongside great leaps in scientific thinking, literature and music, came huge changes in art, with the development of perspective, the use of oil paints, and change in subject matter away from the principally religious. Patronage now not only came from the church but also from the noblemen of Italy.

Included in the collection are great works by Italian Masters: Giotto, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Bellini, and Titian, amongst others. Please click here to view a lightbox:
