You sure Perspective is lacking in the classical art?

 I would add there was no photography, no videos, no printers. Painting was a booming industry, needed in medicine, construction, landscaping, etc...Relaxation of medieval religious strict rules was a step ahead in medicine. Before that, opening up the body to study anatomy was not allowed. Painters were suddenly required to draw internal organs.

Painters were mostly professionals rather than artists. Artistic Renaissance painting was the outcome of multitudes of people making their living as painters one way or another. Some of them, by way of sheer statistics became artists. So, to me, it was the very important role of painting in the growing quickly developing time of the Renaissance that led to the great Renaissance art, so superior and so diffrent to its predecessors.

Sandro Botticelli had a muse called Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci, and is the face in many of his paintings. Though she was also painted by others too. I've got to say I have a fascination
 of the whole idea of muses, and I believe this one is very special.

The Birth of Venus, by Sandro Botticelli. 1486

Venus and Mars, by Sandro Botticelli, 1483

undefined

Primavera, by Sandro Botticelli, 1482

undefined

Cleopatra, by Piero di Cosimo, 1480. This one is my favourite painting with Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci.

Here is a roman painting of Hercules strangling the snake.  It looks like perspective is used. A very advanced piece of art, lacking nothing  in comparison to the renaissance painting.

Yes, it seems that perspective is used, for the middle figure. What time is it done? - I had never seen this picture before.

You mean "her", right? Artemisia Gentilesci was the only accepted Renaissance woman painter I know of.
I haven't seen this picture, it's beautiful. She generally don't have attractive faces on her woman characters...like in "Susanna and the Elders"

Now this is a beautifully portrayed painting and powerful in its depiction. Rembrandt's The Sacrifice Of Abraham, 1635. Very evocative. Btw if you look carefully you will see a ram caught in a thicket, that is the real sacrifice.

This is a beautiful, and touching painting, the "Small Cowper Madonna", by, Raphael, 1505, and is oil on panel. It is thought it was a gift by Raphael as a wedding present.

Here's another painting with a Madonna on it. This one is the Madonna of the Harpies, by Andrea del Sarto, 1517, and is oil on wood. It's such a beautiful creation.
