  • (Renaissance st.) - Borrowing its name from Europe’s most recognizable time period, Renaissance artwork and designs emerged at the time of many advancements in philosophy, literature, music, and science. At its foundation, the Renaissance style displayed many elements from classical antiquity and the Greco-Roman world. Works of art and designs were influenced by these classical principles but were adapted to include recent social and scientific knowledge. The Renaissance marked a transitional period in Europe that saw the end of the medieval age and the beginnings of the early modern age. Renaissance artists include Jan van Eyck, Titian, Michelangelo, and Raphael, with notable works such as the statue of David by Donatello, The Birth of Venus, by Botticelli, and The Ghent Altarpiece by van Eyck.
