Artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Albrecht Durer were all sponsored by patrons who developed their skills and talents. Michelangelo created the powerful sculpture of David (1504) in Florence. “Michelangelo’s work represents the epitome of art during the renaissance, a time of cultural rebirth” It symbolises the power of the individual and the power of the state at the time. A powerful patron that was Pope Julius 2nd commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel which conveyed the individuality and talent of this cultural genius. “Painters now faithfully depicted the beauty of mountains, rocks and gardens for their own sakes.” These artists “experimented with perspective, paid greater attention to proportion, shadowing and naturalistic representation and took their subjects from antiquity.” Although many new techniques such as perspective and linear drawings were introduced, they also learnt from both the Greeks and the Romans about soul when they drew a human face.

Petrarch: Humanism Within Renaissance Art Francesco Petrarca, commonly anglicized as Petrarch, was an Italian scholar and poet in Renaissance Italy, who was one of the earliest humanists. He is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance due to his humanistic observations displayed in his many letters and sonnets composed during his lifetime. Because of his eagerness to rail against the conditions of his era through his poems and other written compositions, Petrarch is often considered the founder of Humanism. This philosophical system that emphasizes the value of humanity has been the driving force to improvisation of critical thinking throughout the ages. Many of these humanistic ideas that Petrarch conveyed throughout the beginning of the Renaissance not only inspired many modern idealisms, but also influenced many artists and poets to begin showcasing their unique pieces reflecting the overall form.

Paul Duffield’s setting of the play in a damaged island at the beginning of the graphic novel is contrasted with a utopian landscape, a paradise achieved by man working in harmony with nature. Through the romantic union of Miranda and Ferdinand, not only the former Duke of Milan is reconciled with his Milanese court but there is also hope for the recovery of the island. The SelfMadeHero edition of The Tempest demonstrates that the adapters of graphic novels do not simply repeat the works of Shakespeare, but they can interpret a play in different ways by using the combination of images and

Guided by the taste of the sovereigns, particularly Zhao Ji (趙佶), painters at the court foundation focused on watching nature cumulated with "lovely supposition" to strengthen the outflow of both subject and craftsman. The focus on beautiful estimation prompted the cumulation of painting, verse, and calligraphy (the "Three Splendors") in the same work (frequently as a collection leaf or fan) by the Southern Melody (1127-1279). Researchers prior in the Northern Tune (960-1126) suspected that painting as a craftsmanship needed to transcend simply the "presence of structures" with a specific end goal to express the originations and development of the craftsman. This turned into the substructure of the kineticism kenned as literati (philomath)
