The art of renaissance and the middle ages
1. Describe the earlier period. Your description should include the characteristics of the style, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of this style. Middle ages or as it is also called, the medieval period was a span of about one thousand years and took place approximately from around the 5th century to the 14th century. There are two art forms of the middle ages which I would like to discuss. The first one is the Romanesque art, which was popular from the 10th century to the 12th century and dominated Europe. 2. Describe the later period. Your description should include the characteristics of the style, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of this style.
Renaissance, which means “rebirth” began in Italy and was a much shorter span of history than the middle ages. Renaissance occurred in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The relationship between the art of the middle ages and art from the renaissance period is
a. Explain the stylistic and historical similarities or differences between the periods b. Explain how the later period continued or deviated from the artistic style and tradition of the earlier period. Renaissance art incorporated
4. Compare one specific work from the earlier period with one specific work from the later period. Both works should be from the same discipline (music, visual art, architecture, or literature). 5. Explain the stylistic influence that the later art period had on the future art world. (i.e., its legacy, or historical influence) Note: You will want to identify both periods in your essay and describe the art periods (time periods, characteristics, and social conditions that may have contributed to the advent of the styles of the period), but you will want to do so in a way that will allow your readers to see how the descriptions support your thesis concerning the relationship between the two art periods.
