Transcript of The Renaissance Era

Renaissance "Renaissance" came from a French word meaning rebirth, to describe the revival of Europe cultural after a long, dark Middle Ages by Italian intellectuals (artists, scholars, philosophers and theologians). A time when interest in education, literature, politic, arts and science was reborn. The Renaissance period occurred around 14th to the 17th century. Leonardo da Vinci 1452 to1519 - Most famous paintings are Mona Lisa Smile and the Last Supper. He was careful and precise, never rushing his work. Few artists can match his ability. His legacy included drawings of the human anatomy, plans for a tank, helicopter, ideas on construction of multi-level canal and road system. Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 to1564 - Skilled painter and sculptor. Spent many years painting in the Sistine Chapel and created the world's greatest statues, the enormous David and the emotional Pieta. Albrecht Durer 1471 to 1528 - Northern Renaissance man from Germany. Skilled in painting, printmaking, mathematics, engraving and theory. Soups were very rich and expensive. Made of various colors, sweetened with sugar, and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Very important part of the Renaissance food were the roasts. Prepared by first boiling the meat and thoroughly basting with orange juice and rose-water, and covered with sugar and powdered spices. Italy Sandro Botticelli 1445 to 1510 - Italian painter of the Early Renaissance. Noted artwork is the famed "The Birth of Venus". Raphael Sanzio 1483 to 1520 - Italian architect and painter of the High Renaissance. Known for the perfection and grace in his artwork. Master among Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Philosopher Men's Clothing Renaissance men wore four important pieces of clothing.

First was the camicia or shirt, worn close to the skin as an undergarment. Camicia was made with silk or soft fine linens for upper-class men and heavy coarse linen for the lower-class. The camicia was never worn alone, which would symbolize a working man. Over the camicia was the doublet, which was a close fitted jacket worn with or without sleeves. Longer doublet was worn with a small skirt. Top of the doublet stood away from the neck to create a smoother more elegant look. The hose is the next piece of dress. It was attached to the doublet and seamed together at the crotch. The fabric was woven and worn tight to attain smoothness. The outer piece of clothing was the jacket. It was worn over the shoulders and chest, then falling in full pleats and belted at the waist.

The clothing worn by the Renaissance men was stiff and tight, which cause movement to be restrictive and mechanical. By 16th century, movement became more natural with the removal of padding from jackets.

Footwear was a big part of the men's fashion. The shoes at the beginning were long, pointed and worn for indoor only. Leather clogs with wooden soles were worn for outdoor. Shoes became broader or duck billed with ribbons tied across the top around the turn of the century.

Hats, hair styles and accessories were the last essential pieces. The younger men wore their hair long from ears to shoulders. Older men wore their hair shorter and sometimes shaved. Turban-like hats were worn with a while coif beneath. Early Renaissance men also wore narrow belts, carried small purses and daggers, and finger rings on the joints of their first and second fingers only. Men's Clothing Women's Clothing Dresses was worn the chemise or camicia, either in one or two pieces. The one piece was a cut from shoulder to hem, with the top similar to men's jacket. The two piece dress consist of a bodice and fuller gathered skirt. The undergarment was the chemise, which form the shape of the dress. In later years, it was shown at the neckline and sleeves of the dress. The sleeves was cut long, to the wrist or the end of the sleeve of the outer dress.

Hair style and head dresses was very elaborate. Women spent hours plucking hair from their forehead and side of their face to achieve a high forehead. Remaining hair was pulled into a tight bun or braid and covered with some kind of head dress. Women's hair and head dress changed considerably many times throughout the Renaissance.

Women's footwear was very extravagant. The footwear came in a height of 13 inches and jeweled ornaments. Made with wood and decorated with paint, mother of pearl and other stones. Some covered in leather or velvet.

The Renaissance Period caused fashion to change forever. Elaborate details, colorful fabrics and expensive jewels were just a few element of the Renaissance fashion. Women's Clothing Music was an important part of religious and courtly life in the Renaissance. Music instruments like the viola, lute, recorder, harpsichord, organ and other instruments was developed. Music Dancing to music was very popular during the Renaissance. There were two types of social dance. The first was a simple dance performed by an unlimited number of people, in circles or lines. The second type was more complex that required a dancing master, usually performed for an audience.
