The Renaissance was a slowly developing set of ideas that gradually made people aware of
themselves, their place in the environment, and their ability to create grand and beautiful
works. Renaissance is a French word for re-birth; the Italian word is similar (rinascit) and
was used at the time to signify a new age of developing achievement.
High Renaissance was in
some ways the end of the Early Renaissance; it represented a significant departure from
Early Renaissance. Leonardo, Bramante, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Giorgione were some of the
High Renaissance artists.
