Renaissance Art Reconsidered

SLIDESHOW LINK: Italy, Birthplace Of The Renaissance Art?

The Italian Renaissance with a focus on new artistic techniques and influence, that is why the art should be reconsidered now and again, plus in addition it can give “…an initimate glimpse into the reality of making art, and the geographical, material and theoretical factors that shaped artistic production between 1400 and 1530. As the book ‘Renaissance Art Reconsidered’ [does widen] the traditional focus of Renaissance art history, considering texts from northern Europe and the Mediterranean alongside texts relating to Italian art. [As well as bringing], together a wide variety of contracts, extracts from treaties, letters, diaries, wills and other important documents, to provide crucial insight into the art and the context in which it was produced.”

Which will come in handy as a set book for the AA315: Renaissance Art Reconsidered course, and its end of course assignment, in which I will have to undertake a chosen topic; to discuss in detail Renaissance Art for about 4,500 words as an independent essay on this matter of traditional assumptions.
