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.

    I've put in bold above some of the influencing factors your original assignment called for. You need to research DaVinci and Michelangelo and their contemporaries to see (not just read about) their works and how the factors in bold above affected them. You might have to review some medieval artists, too, so you know how the Renaissance artists' work was different from earlier works.
