One of the most important chapters of European history is the Renaissance period between the 14th and 17th centuries. Several significant developments took place in the fields of music, literature, science and philosophy, during this eventful period. The period also saw the rise of several artists who went on to become legends and earn millions of followers around the world. Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Donatello, Caravaggio and Giovanni Bellini are a few painters who made waves during the renaissance period. Their iconic works have been displayed at various museums and art galleries around the world. Leonardo da Vinci was an immensely talented artist who was equally prolific at architecture and engineering as painting. Even those who don’t follow fine art too religiously are aware of Da Vinci’s works like ‘Last Supper’, ‘Mona Lisa’ and ‘Bacchus’. Several intellectuals have interpreted these works of art in many ways and have remarked that Da Vinci’s works have several hidden metaphors. They opine that on decrypting the meanings hidden in paintings like ‘Last Supper’ does one realize how great a legend Leonardo Da Vinci is. Many patrons also consider Caravaggio an institution of art. His works have been astonishing people around the world since many decades now. Many contemporary painters owe their success to these yesteryear greats for inspiring them to express themselves better on the canvas. Here’s a list of many artists who became famous during the renaissance period who have earned admirers all over the world.
