As we stroll, we’ll appreciate the revolutionary techniques introduced by Cimabue and Giotto, whose expressiveness in two-dimensional art and original approach to representing space made them the pioneers of the Renaissance. After, we will contemplate the apex of harmony and naturalism, as symbolized by the works of Lippi and Botticelli, while also touching on philosophical concepts that were becoming increasingly popular at the time at the court of the Medici family. Our last stop will take us to some of the greatest examples from the Mannerist period, such as Parmigianino and Bronzino. By the end of the tour, we’ll have gained a greater understanding of the concepts of beauty, technical mastery, and the deep relationship between art and politics in Renaissance society.
