Mini Wiki: What is Renaissance Art?
During the two hundred years between 1400 and 1600, Europe witnessed an astonishing revival of drawing, fine art painting, sculpture and architecture centred on Italy, which we now refer to as the Renaissance (rinascimento). It was given this name (French for 'rebirth') as a result of Jules Michelet's famous study La Renaissance in 1855, and was better understood after Jacob Burckhardt's landmark book Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy in 1860.
