  Art took a back seat to these other happenings, and styles moved from Gothic to Renaissance to Baroque in sort of a non-cohesive, artist-by-artist basis. – Baroque Art Humanism, the Renaissance, and the Reformation (among other factors) worked together to leave the Middle Ages forever behind, and art became accepted by the masses. Drawing on recent research by established and emerging scholars of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century art, this volume reconsiders the art and architecture produced after across the conventional geographic borders. Rather than considering this period a degraded afterword to Renaissance .

Sandro Botticelli or Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi (c. - ) was an Italian painter of the Early Renaissance. He belonged to the Florentine school under the patronage of Lorenzo de' Medici, a movement that Giorgio Vasari would characterize less than a hundred years later as a "golden age", a thought, suitably enough, he expressed at the head of his Vita of Botticelli. THE SWABIAN SCHOOL represented grace and charm rather than dramatic power. This is evident in the work of Friedrich Herlin for the high altar of the Jakobskirche at Rothenburg (), in the almost Italian crucifix in the Hauptkirche at Nordlingen, in the beautiful choir stalls by Jorg Syrlin in Ulm Cathedral, and in the famous high altar at Blaubeuren.

Society in the Renaissance was liberated and driven toward self understanding and awareness of the world in which humans lived: 1. New values 2. Technological achievements 3. Painting & sculpture took on as great or greater importance than architecture. 4. Technique of chiaroscuro. 5.   Since he has worked as an investigative journalist based in Switzerland and Budapest – his Art Newspaper exposé of a fake Russian Avant-Garde exhibition in Ghent led to the sacking of the museum director – and pursuing a journalistic and curatorial interest in the contemporary art scene in Central and Eastern Europe.
