Giotto and the Roots of the Renaissance

The flowering of artistic activity that characterises the visual culture of 15th century Italy has its roots in the remarkably fresh and inventive work of earlier generations.


The flowering of artistic activity that characterises the visual culture of 15th century Italy has its roots in the remarkably fresh and inventive work of earlier generations. Sculptors and painters across Italy began to develop a new naturalism of style that moved their art away from Byzantine formality while also responding to the Gothic innovations of northern Europe and to a growing interest in classical Roman art. The communicative power of such early Renaissance work remains immediate, vibrant and surprisingly touching. Find out why Giotto and Cimabue became the most famous painters of their time, why the cult of St. Francis affected Italian art and how vivid visual story-telling that integrated art and life can still move a modern audience.
