This paper is an in-depth look at the history of art in the Italian and Northern Renaissances, and Italian Baroque. The author discusses how art reflected the social and cultural changes, and compares the styles of the three periods.

From the Paper:

"A glance back into the history of art genre and style is much like a glance back into a globalized mirror of cultural and societal change. Art is a traditional form of expression common to all civilizations and cultures, a form of expression that has conventionally been shaped by a shifting society and dictated by the diversities that shift that society. A look at the history of the evolution of art genre and style, therefore, offers also a reflective look at the centuries of change and decades of dissemination that shaped not only the evolution of art, but also the evolution of human civilization at large. Three artistic periods in particular present a clear and comprehensive reflection of the societies and eras that shaped them. These periods are known as the Italian Renaissance, the Northern Renaissance and the era of the Italian Baroque."
