Renaissance Artist HW #5

Donatello is a Renaissance sculptor known for prospective illusions in his sculptures. He has worked with other sculptors to create statues for the church. He worked with the church to create statues of the prophets and to create a monument. His most famous piece is the bronze David. His sculptures were the basis of perspective in the arts.My opinion is that his work is very creative and his sculputures.

Medici Family :)

The Medici Family was a famliy of bankers in the city of Florence.=in Italy during the 14th century,they normal people during the Renaissance.But,they became better bribirng other people,they caused violence,and even death who ever came upon them.One important thing they did was that they would always support artist for example, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Galileo.Now this people were very important artist back then in Florence.These artist had like something because they made more people get involved in more art wich was very nice.The family got popular when the Pope said that the Medici family was the most reliable bank. They earned lots of money and stayed open. The other banks went out of business. They also supported an architecture named Brunelleschi that was thought of as unorthodox. When he started building, people were amazed by his work.My opinion :is that i think they had very great impact in there society.They brought classical architecture back, inspired artists, and they helped create the Renaissance because of what they did. Without the Renaissance, our world would be not that involved in the arts, sciences
