The Renaissance, why is this time period so important and crucial to modern days? Why .
must everyone know about the Renaissance? Its all just history, right? No, this time period has .
affected the whole world to a terminable power. Art, must, math and science as we know it today .
evolved from the Renaissance time period. The whole state of discovering new things came from .

Michelangelo, Raphael, and who could forget none other then the great Massacicio who was one .
of the greatest artist of all time. He made the essence of lines come to life by exploring new ways .
and theories to paint and draw. It is often said that Massacicio painted one of the very first .

follow. The four basic principles where called: Linear Perspective, Atmospheric Perspective, The .
Separation of Planes, and The Classic Color Theory .
Linear Prospective was the pace at which objects receded into the distance which were .
determined by three imaginary lines. Two important imaginary lines used in Linear Prospective .
was the horizon line and the vanishing point. The horizon line basically the boundaries between .
two lines, and the vanishing point just extinguished two or more lines from each other. This .
linear prospective gave a "real" space on a flat surface .
