Chapter 14.4 The Power of Kings11300- 1650The RenaissanceCh. 15 Section 1Mrs. Becknell

What was the Renaissance?

A widespread change in culture that began in Italy in the 1300s and then spread to England, France, Germany, and the Netherlands by 1650. RENAISSANCE means REBIRTH

3City-statesThe Renaissance began in the city-states of Italy.A City-state is a city that has its own independent government and often controls much of the surrounding land. The most powerful city-states were not under the control of a king or noble or the Catholic Church, but were republics instead.

4Why did the Renaissance begin in ITALY? Italy is in a prime location for trade with other cultures so they came to appreciate the ideas of other peoples.

As trade increased, merchants of Italy made huge fortunes and became PATRONS, meaning that they sponsored the arts, or devoted money to them.

Italy was made up of independent city-states that competed for power, wealth, and glory- this encouraged people to try new ways of doing things and inspired creativity.

Italy was the home of Ancient Rome and the Center of the Church, which had preserved ancient writings and used its wealth to promote painting, learning, and writing.

What family rose to power in Florence because of the wealth they gained?

The MEDICI family made a huge fortune through trade and banking. They were masters of money-lending.


The Medici were generous patrons, or sponsors, of the arts and learning and helped Florence to become a center filled with beautiful buildings, paintings, and statues.

Cosimo de Medici

He was the head of a powerful family in Florence. He was a patron (supporter) of the arts who paid for many works to beautify his city-state.His son, Lorenzo the Magnificent became the most famous Medici, and the richest man in Florence!

Examine the accomplishments of several important Renaissance artists


Chapter 14.4 The Power of Kings14 How did the focus of art change from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance?In the Middle Ages, the focus was on God and getting to Heaven. These ideas remained important, however, now the focus is more on HUMANISM over religion.


As the Renaissance spread, many scholars became interested in HUMANISM.It is the focus on the individual which was emphasized in the classics , or ancient times of Greece & Rome. In these times, people held the belief that individuals are talented and strong and that they can improve society!

16The First Great Humanist:Francesco PetrarchFrancesco Petrarch 1304-1374 was a scholar and is considered the first great humanist! He is known for poetry, especially the sonnet- a 14 versed Italian poemHis work inspired artists!

Chapter 14.4 The Power of Kings20Da Vinci & The Mona Lisa

Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa or La Gioconda (another name for it) is most famous piece of art in the world.It is now owned by the French and hangs in the Louvre. **What techniques did he use?Fun fact: (This painting may never have been finished. Why do you think this is?)

21Leonardo DaVinciThe Mona Lisa-a self-portrait?

Da Vinci also painted The Last Supper .Where is the VANISHING POINT?Mysteries surround this work too!

23Leonardo DaVinci

The Last Supper-is this a woman?Leonardo DaVinciThe Last Supper-John or Mary?

Bartholomew, James Minor and Andrew form a group of three. All are horrified, Andrew to the point of holding his hands up in a "let's calm down " gesture. Judas, Peter and John form the next group of three. Judas has his face in shadow and is clutching a small bag, presumably money. He is also reaching for bread at the same time as Jesus is. Peter, in the fashion of the time, is shown clutching a knife and, with his hand on John's shoulder, is asking a feminine-looking John "Who does he say it is?". John leans toward him to hear what he says creating a V shape between himself and Jesus which has been interpreted by some as an indication of a marriage between 'Mary' and Jesus. Thomas, James the Elder and Philip are next. 'Doubting' Thomas is pointing upward, maybe asking for one shred of evidence that this is so. His other hand is on the table between James and Philip as though seeking something solid. Matthew, Thaddeus and Simon comprise the last group.In addition to the Mona Lisa (& Last Supper,) for what did Leonardo da Vinci become famous?Leonardo was a scientist and an inventor too! He was well-known for his 4,000+ notebook pages that he filled with sketches and notes related to his observations of the world around him and his ideas for inventions.
