Does this answer it?

**from my textbook**

During the Italian Renaissance, artists and scholars developed an interest in the art and literature of ancient Greece and Rome. This interest in the classics was called humanism. Humanists, the scholars who encouraged humanism, embraced the Greco-Roman belief that each individual has dignity and worth.

Artists also really admired the lifelike appearance of classical works and yearned to capture the same quality in their own works. They turned to a study of nature and the surviving classical sculptures in an effort to make their artworks look more realistic.
