This lectures gives an overview of the Italian Renaissance. It would be well-suited for a short lesson or lecture on art history of this time period. The following artists and their works are covered: Giotto, Masaccio, Donatello, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Rafael. Also included are slides about the philosophies that led to High Renaissance Art, as well as characteristics of the style. One video clip link to an online video that can be accessed by anyone is also included. 29 slides. 1 video link. After giving this lecture, my students do the Renaissance Web Activity, which I have also offered for sale.
