During the Renaissance (15th–16th centuries), artists expressed human qualities in their art in part as a result of a rebirth of interest in Greek and Roman ideas, philosophy, and art. This exploration of the human form and emotions in art has continued up to the present day. This tour will cover the rebirth of interest in the human world during the Renaissance and examine how those artists influenced the art of future generations who have used the human form to express their concerns and represent the world in which they live.
