The Renaissance in the 15th and 16th centuries resulted in a new period of art. It was based on ancient Roman culture and humanism. The human being played a central role. One of the early leaders was the Italian artist, Masaccio (1401 to 1428). His fresco in Florence (The Trinity) revolutionized art in painting. Masaccio used linear perspective to place his figures in depth and space. Masaccio’s friend Brunelleschi, an architect, first used linear perspective in architecture. We are used to paintings that create the illusion of space; Masaccio ushered in linear perspective and changed the world of art.
