Rediscovering the Past(Greek and Roman)
The Greek and Roman classical ideas help shape the development of the Renaissance because of its Art. The classical art helped inspire the renaissance the most because they both tried to make their creations realistic."Figures looked lifelike and three-dimensional, reflecting an increasing knowledge of anatomy" and "Figures were lifelike but often idealized, or more perfect than in real life".These pieces of evidence show how Greek and Roman art were like the Renaissance art.
