  • Basically, in this chapter we are on a road to the Renaissance. We have just come from the Romanesque period, a time of great pilgrimage that referenced Classical forms in architecture.  We have come from the Gothic period, the age of cathedral building meant to house and meet the needs of greater pilgrimage. The Gothic period also brought about a change in art-making, with a noticeable shift to direct observation and natural emotionalism.  These periods lead us to this Proto-Renaissance period—one that is continually leaving behind the Italo-Byzantine styles for an even more natural style and emotionalism. Why? What makes this change occur?  Art does not exist in a vacuum. It is a reflection of the worldview in which it arises—like literature, politics, religion, the sciences, its forms and styles, its questions and meanings arise in a specific culture. Also, remember that change is a rebellious act; we have to discover what is being rebelled against. This is NOT necessarily a conscious rebellion. Our job is to see why. Why rebel? What’s going on in the age before the Renaissance?Remember that the ideas that gained momentum in the 14th century—humanism, direct observation, greater concern with the solidity of forms, and the interest in illusion—became prominent in the following centuries, during a period known as the Renaissance.
