A 48-slide editable PowerPoint template exploring the famous artists and signature artistic techniques of the Renaissance.

Society in fifteenth-century Italy had reached political stability, and sophistication bloomed. It was time for art to focus on ordinary people and to celebrate individuality. A cultural explosion in Florence brought forth a brand-new art movement known as the Renaissance. For the next 150 years, Renaissance artists were society’s rock stars!
