The Renaissance moves North… Italian Renaissance Northern Renaissance • Took place in Italy. • More secular (non-religious). • Anatomy, attention to human detail (humanism) • Focus on Greece & Rome (domes, pillars, arches.). • Enjoyment of, and indulging on, worldly goods. • Outside of Italy, but within Europe. • Without a direct link to Rome and Greece, it was more religious. • Focus on color and detail, but not humanism (think strands of hair, but not definition of muscle.) • Gradual change from the Medieval Era into the Renaissance. • Focus on the sciences and mathematics.
