Inquiry Project: How did Renaissance key figures affect modern art, music, and literature?

Leonardo started as an artist in 1496, because his father apprenticed him to the fabled workshop of Verocchio

The Renaissance was a long way from cameras, movies, and other media, but Leonardo wanted to create a language through paintings. He used perspective and other elements to make his paintings realistic. Leonardo was making paintings that would mirror life.

Leonardo paved the way with realistic paintings by not only using perspective but also studying nature and the human form. His competitors had more cartoon-ish and disproportionate paintings, which made them feel like they were fake. Leonardo believed that an artist must know the rules of perspective and the laws of nature.
These techniques are still used today by many modern artists. Like many other renaissance musicians there isn't much known about him so . He started with his first job as a singer teacher at the collegiate church of Saint Omar, after that he moved to Nesle in 1477, and in 1483 was made maitre de chapelle there. Around that time he became a priest, and in 1500 he was in charge of choirboys at the cathedral in Ameins. Jean Muton Leonardo Davinci April 1452- May 1519 Artists Raphael April 1483- April 1520 Raphael was born in Urbino where his dad worked as a court painter. He began his training there and must have known the works by other great artists at an early age.
From 1500 - when he became an independent master - through 1508 he worked throughout central Italy, particularly Florence. That's where he became famous for his portraits and paintings. Most of his paintings still exist today. Authors Niccolo Machiavelli May 1469-June 1527, More was well known as a scholar. Around 1515, he wrote 'The History of Richard III' which established that king's reputation as a tyrant and has been called the first masterpiece of English historiography. In 1516, he published his most important book, 'Utopia' - a description of an imaginary republic, intended to contrast the good and the bad of their 'modern' society and politics. Thomas More February 1478- July 6, 1535 More was an English lawyer, scholar, writer, member of parliament, and chancellor during the reign of Henry VIII. He was executed for refusing to recognize Henry VIII's divorce and the church's break with Rome. Musician Niccolo Machiavelli was born in Florence. He was a political theorist and an author. He is one of the most controversial people in political history. He was the author of The Prince. This is a straight-forward book on political conduct and the application of power. Over time, this book has been changed. Never has one book caused so much feedback from readers and other writers. Rena ssance Renaissance Music Music was one of the most important parts of the Renaissance. The rich interchange of ideas in Europe, as well as political, economic, and religious events in the period 1400-1600 led to major changes in all musical aspects. To create these new types of music, the instruments needed to evolve. The most important music at the time was written for and performed in churches. Renaissance art can be traced back to Italy in the 13th and 14th centuries. Renaissance art, with Renaissance humanistic beliefs, spread throughout Europe, affecting both artists and patrons, which caused the art production of the time to grow exponentially. With new techniques and artistic thoughts, Renaissance artists created some the most acclaimed pieces that have ever been made. Renaissance art marks the change from the Medieval period to early modern age. Renaissance Art Renaissance Authors During the Renaissance, writers were starting to question the ridged beliefs and structures of Medieval times. This caused people to think differently about the times they were in. It brought about the dawn on new thinking. I think all of the elements I have presented come together to show that the Renaissance has affected how we think about government and religion, how and what we read, the way we see art, and the way we listen to music. Without the knowledge gained during the Renaissance, we would live in a much less artistically and intellectually evolved world. Bibliography: BBC News. BBC, n.d. Web. 17 Jan. 2013.
