Art Renaissance Art Each of Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



Ritual and pageantry also surround the architecture and buildings of the time, as the article on the Medici indicates. The architecture of the Renaissance is rich in art and tradition, making it some of the most memorable architecture in the world. Without art, this would not be the case, as the buildings celebrate the beauty of design and balance as well as form and function. Clearly, art permeates every aspect of the Renaissance world, from the pageants and rituals that were so common, to the pageantry of the buildings that represent the time.

Not only do these pieces indicate the importance of religion in Renaissance society, they indicate that rites, and rites of passage are common throughout the world, even in uncivilized countries, which indicates this is a very common social form of worship and custom. We still observe many rites of passage in society today, from "sweet 16" birthday parties to graduation from high school and college, which indicates we still have many roots in Renaissance society, including our appreciation of rites and rites of passage.
