Renaissance Art

As with Renaissance Literature, three themes of Renaissance Art: Humanism, Secularism, and Classicism.

The Renaissance will see a shift in art - from art purely for the sake of glorifying God and teaching Biblical and Catholic lessons to art for the sake of also glorifying human beings and their Earthly emotions, experiences, surroundings.

Realism will be the key to Renaissance art, as compared to Medieval Art…


  • Carolingian Evangelist

  • Late 8th Century

  • From the CodexAureus of Lorsch (an illuminated Gospel Book from the Charlemagne period of the Frankish kingdom)


  • A typical Medieval depiction of Christ

  • A Christ Pantokrator (Christ with the halo in a cross form)

  • From the 11th Century


  • The Morgan Leaf – detached from the 12th Century Winchester Bible (English)

  • Depicts scenes from the life of David

Realism – the key difference.

  • Contributes to the humanism of Italian Art

  • Achieved through use of new techniques:

    • Perspective

    • Chiaroscuro and realistic coloring
