Buffet Stlye Renaissance

item details

A wonderful carved 19th century renaissance style oak buffet. the renaissance is generally regarded as beginning in florence, where there was a revival of interest in classical antiquity. important early figures are the writers petrarch, dante, and boccaccio and the painter giotto. music flourished, from madrigals to the polyphonic masses of palestrina, with a wide variety of instruments such as viols and lutes. the period from the end of the 15th century has become known as the high renaissance, when venice and rome began to share florence's importance and raphael, leonardo da vinci, and michelangelo were active. renaissance thinking spread to the rest of europe from the early 16th century and was influential for the next hundred years.
