The Renaissance (meaning a revival of or renewed interest in something) was called that because the scholars and artists in Florence, Italy at the time began to rediscover the ideals, the values and the achievements of a Roman culture long past.

Its growth met some resistance in the late 14th century due to plague and war. The Renaissance influence emerged once more when Lorenzo Ghiberti, Masaccio, and a young Donatello brought out the style in their art.

The center of Renaissance art moved from Florence to Rome and reached a significant peak due to the influence of Pope Leo X and the Catholic Church.

Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael Sanzio, and Michelangelo Buonarotti were the principal artists of this period, and it lasted until Rome was sacked by Charles V of Spain. The great works like the Mona Lisa, the Sistine Chapel, and the School of Athens were produced in this period.
