is a study of two key historic shifts in perception in European Art.
The early Renaissance in the 15th century and then, half a century later, 20th century Modernism both boldly demanded a different, new worldview.
Renaissance artists and thinkers were discovering, inventing and claiming in the name of a return to the lost values of classical Ancient Greece and Rome. The modern avant-gardes of the 20th century invented and set a new worldview in the name of the truth, which is already implied, only waiting to enter into reality.
The bold demands of these two movements permanently integrated into the way the world is perceived. The Renaissance break was followed by almost 500 years of loyalty to classical principles. The postmodern period is being faithful to the frame set by the Modern avant-gardes.
What can these two breaks, these two phase transitions in perception, teach us about our worldview?
