The Renaissance

Published March 17, 2014 by wouldbewitch

A 150 word blog discussing what you already know about the Renaissance.  Most people have some sort of base knowledge, even if it’s nothing more than the Ninja Turtles names.  What do you know (or think you know) about people like Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I?  What about the artwork and/or music of the time?

Well Renaissance means “rebirth” in the art and teachings….and yes I know the Ninja Turtle names. Leonardo for Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo for Michelangelo Buonarroti (had to look up last name) Raphael..I’m not quite sure about and then Donatello they were all artist of this time.

I know the song about his wives (learned it from 1 Vs. 100). Watched the other Boleyn girl learned about Anne or some of the truth, it is a movie after all. I know Elizabeth the first was Anne’s daughter and the greatest queen they had. She never married so she didn’t have an heir. and I know a little bit about Mary, Queen of Scots.

There was paintings, sculptures, literature, secular music. This was the rebirth of all that. Here is some art of that time.
