The two medieval pieces in my gallery, Altarpiece of the Saints John and Maesta Trinita, are lacking some of the techniques that were used during the Renaissance in art. These techniques are realism and perspective. Perspective gave artwork a 3D effect and realism made the art look more life like. The other aspect of Renaissance art that made it different from Medieval art was that it no longer centered around the church. People were focusing more on themselves, which was reflected in the subject of new pieces of art.
