Although the Italian renaissance started in about 1350 AD, it would take more than hundred years until it spread to the rest of Europe. Inspired by the first archaeological excavations, the art was strongly influenced by classical Roman and Greek cultures. The renaissance was the medieval enlightenment in all but in name. It's famous for idealising the human body and its colourful decorations, that could cover enormous spaces and can be found back on buildings, paintings but also on armour and pottery.
