Art as we know it today could not exist if the Renaissance artists had not led the way with their revolutionary work. Considered by many to be the most important and influential movement in the history of fine art, literature, architecture, and science, the Renaissance marked the rise of modernity and the end of the Middle Ages .

The Renaissance gained strength in Italy at the end of the fourteenth century, and later spread throughout Europe with the impetus of the main centers of artistic activity in Florence, the old Netherlands and Germany . The movement found its intellectual base in humanism, derived from classical Greek philosophy. Through art, science, literature, and politics, the defenders of the Renaissance affirmed that man was the "measure of all things" and decided to overcome the limits of medieval scholasticism by recovering classical antiquity. Under the influence of humanism, artists advanced the study of anatomy and geometry, reaching new heights of figurative accuracy and revolutionizing perspective and spatial representation of human experience . In Flemish painting, artists such as Bruegel introduced new techniques and a sensitivity to the everyday with landscapes and still lifes, while in Germany Dürer and Cranach pioneered woodcuts and engravings with unprecedented drama and psychological insight.

From Florence to Nuremberg, from Venice to Bruges, this work offers a rigorous introduction to that powerfully transformative movement that was the Renaissance . Through its great figures and others lesser known, the social and political circumstances, and its mutation and evolution over time and geography, we approach an extraordinary phenomenon, centuries of transformation bequeathed by individual geniuses, regional varieties, and a new way of seeing and representing the world.

Among the artists presented are: Fra Angelico, Giovanni Bellini, Hieronymus Bosch, Sandro Botticelli, Pieter Brueghel, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Albrecht Dürer, El Greco, Matthias Grünewald, Hans Holbein the Younger, Fra Filippo Lippi, Masaccio, Miguel µngel, Pontormo, Raphael, Tintoretto, Titian, Paolo Uccello, Veronese and Leonardo da Vinci.
