In this thread I'd like to discuss the renaissance which I was surprised to learn had not been discussed as of yet. What I'd like to know is what are some of your favourite renaissance artists, or just individual paintings, sculptures or buildings and why? It would be a good idea to include an image in your response.

The School of Athens by Michalengelo is my favourite painting because I think it really captures what the renaissance is suppose to be about which is the revival of the classics. In this painting, Greek philosopher including Plato and Aristotle (Centre) are discussing issues in a beautiful building that mankind has created for its self. It is celebrating humanities' accomplishments. Although, I think that Leonardo da Vinci is the ultimate renaissance man.

This painting is by my favourite renaissance painter Leonardo Da Vinci. I feel that he could rally capture beauty.

That is so strange I can't seem to find it in the Renaissance and Imperialism age page, but when I click on your link it brings me to it. I started this threat because I thought that there weren't any thread about the renaissance.

You are right about Leonardo.  However, Michaelangelo did not paint that.  I believe it was Rafael.

He captured the essence of Plato and Aristotle.  Plato, the ultimate metaphysicist, is pointing towards the heavens.  Aristotle, more interested in natural philosophy, indicates with his hand the down-to-earth aspects.

Perhaps it's because it's been silent for a while and your Show Topics option isn't set to ALL.

Yes, your right it is by Rafael, your right.
