2 Italian Renaissance The Renaissance speaks of a time when interest in art and science are renewed after the hard years of the Middle Ages. Art became more realistic, and artists began painting pictures of all kinds of things – even things that had nothing to do with religion. Artists would paint pictures of nature, and when they painted people, they really tried to show their subjects’ emotions.

3 Raphael Early Period Raphael is known as one of the three greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance. He was born in Italy in 1483. His father was the court painter for the Duke in Umbria. Raphael learned not only about painting from his father but also about how to behave using excellent manners and social skills. Raphael’s parents had both died by the time he was 11. But by then, Raphael was already working as an apprentice to an artist. This is a face from the first work that we are certain that Raphael worked on. He was about 17 years old when he painted this.

4 Florentine Period Raphael was a very popular artist even when he was still young. Other artists would ask him to come work with them on special projects. He spent a lot of time in Florence. Raphael learned a lot from other artists and was always incorporating new ideas and styles into his paintings. Even though Renaissance artists explored non-religious themes in their art, much of Raphael’s art is about religion.
