Italian Renaissance Learning Resources

Visually stunning and freely available, this resource from the National Gallery of Art offers readers eight unique units that elucidate the textures, themes, and context of Italian Renaissance artists. Here readers will find thematic essays, more than 300 breathtaking images, 300+ glossary terms, and 42 primary source texts. Readers may like to start by briefly scouting all eight units, which include learning resources on the topics of Virgin and Child, Picturing Family and Friends, The Making of an Artist, A New World in Learning, and others. Each unit features a series of erudite essays, contextualized with related images, glossary terms, discussion questions, and classroom activities. For instance, the Virgin and Child unit begins with an introduction and then offers information about the origins of the iconic relationship, delves into the Power of Icons, and expands into a treatment of Raphael's Madonna's, among other classic works. For educators and art enthusiasts, this site can provide hours of inspiration.
