4.03 Renaissance Humanities and Fine Arts
Transcript of 4.03 Renaissance Humanities and Fine Arts
Printing Press=Modern day Printer
The first printing press was first developed around 1440, and set the stage for the modern day printer. One of the main uses for the printing press was for musicians, so they could print as many copies of music as he wanted instead of copying by hand, and in this way it represents humanism, by placing the focus on music and the arts instead of God and the Church.
Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet
Prague National Theatre
The Prague National Theatre was built in 1862. It has the design of the classic old Renaissance architecture. Renaissance style architecture represents humanism by honoring people rather than wanting to honor God.
Van Gogh Self Portrait (1889)
Van Gogh was a modern artist born in 1853. He painted many self portraits and this one displays chiaroscuro. The painting displays humanism in art by painting humans rather than religious figures.
I have both read Romeo and Juliet and seen a play of it. It was written in the 1590's, and represents humanism by focusing on the feelings of people, not God and the importance of religion in one's life. This is a picture of Romeo and Juliet in our collection of Shakespeare.
The first microscope was invented around 1590 by Zacharias Janssen and his father. It paved the way for the future electron microscope. It displays humanism by focusing on science and new ideas instead of religion and the known ideas.
