Humanity of Renaissance Art
Put side-by-side subjects in medieval art appear generally as identical, flat and featureless, two-dimensional portraiture’s with white pasty faces. By referring to Jean Clouet’s Portrait of François I King of France, 1525-30; Hans Holbein’s The Ambassadors, 1533 and François Clouet’s A Lady in Her Bath, 1571 humanist thinking in the Renaissance period let artists embark on representing people physiologically unique from other humans. Realizing also that the artists’ works mentioned are a valuable part of history. The artists’ resurgent innovation begins in Italy where it is in respect to God’s handiwork of the human being, the body. Leading the way to a worldwide impression of days gone by which is in portraits of people with individual traits.
