1 Renaissance artists portrayed many things in their art that had never been seen before For one they began showing perspective in their work Artists used this perspective by having all subjects lead back to a vanishing point which is located on a horizon line An example of this is Marriage of a Virgin by Raphael Perspective is shown in the steps leading back to the tower in the back They also show perspective by having larger more detailed objects or figures in the front while having smaller less detailed in the back of the picture Another thing artists changed in their work is that they tried to reveal a spiritual idea through their beliefs in religion They also revealed famous religious Greek and Roman subjects to viewers who had never had the chance to see them before Another thing such artists as Leonardo da Vinci did was turn many of the subjects toward the front so the viewer of the art could see the emotion on each subjects face A good example of this is da Vincis The Last Supper where Jesus and all his disciples are on one side of the table 2 Education helped shape the Renaissance for many reasons For one it made people realize the corruption in the church and how it was taking advantage of its followers for its own personal good It made believers question such decisions made in the Crusades and other times in the Middle Ages They questioned the promised reward in heaven after dying for the church in war or giving the church the money they requested Another thing that education brought about was the desire for individual achievement Instead of wanting the best for the church or society people began wanting their lives to thrive especially after the hard years of war and plague To achieve this they began turning not to the church but to classical ideas instead Out of this humanism
