The 15th century saw the evolution of a distinct and powerfully influential European artistic culture. But what does the familiar phrase "Renaissance Art" actually refer to? Through engaging discussion of timeless works by artists such as Jan van Eyck, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo, Tom Nichols offers a masterpiece of his own as he explores the truly original and diverse character of the art of the Renaissance.
