The Renaissance was a new uprising, it displayed many things, such(prenominal) as freedom, independence, creativity, the rebirth of perfect learning, the rediscovery of ancient Rome and Greece, and many other things. In the heart Ages in that location were only certain religions allowed and certain elans of living. The people thought of the nub Ages as a dark time but the Renaissance changed all that. They no longer wanted the old ways so they changed many aspects and ways of living in this time period, including there own language.The Renaissance artwork was typically not done for fun or as a hobby. It was usually lend oneselfd to make money or made for religious reasons. Only the paintings done by the masters hand would deal for outstanding money, all others being of little va lue. Back then, the church was a big part of the income, resulting in many paintings that were religious themed. They would sell their artwork to cathedrals and churches for money.
