Renaissance art and Baroque art have lots of subject, but I’d like introduce three topic : statues, paintings and furniture.
The one thousand years in the middle ages were dark, and the Renaissance was like a bright star that brought light to the cultural revival of Europe. So, the Renaissance was born at the end of the dark age of the middle ages. On the other hand, Baroque was born in 17-18th century in Italy. It mainly exists in the form of anti-religion. It broken the implication, seriousness and balance of the Renaissance, and upheld luxurious style. First, let’s talking about the statues.
Renaissance’s statues were pursuit –word choice wrong perfect, like Michelangelo’s statues show us the beauty of muscle strength. Also, it shows people symmetry. The Baroque show us ‘dynamic’ , is not in the stillness. Baroque statues were different of Renaissance statues, people get a very heavy feeling. I also want to compare thesetwo cultures different styles of painting.
