The position of scholasticism in the Middle Ages reformed into humanism during the Renaissance through the works of artists, such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael. Leonardo da Vinci is credited for establishing humanistic influences during the Renaissance. Da Vinci enjoyed incorporating science with art; with his findings he concluded that objects were not made of just outlines, but were three-dimensional bodies that were delineated by shadows and light. He was one of the first to study the physical proportions of humans; men, women, and even children to establish the “ideal” figure. He believed as an artist, one should know not just the rules of perspective, but also the laws of nature.
One of them being the different ways of creating art. It spread the idea that paintings should be more realistic than those of the past. It moved away from two-dimensional style to three-dimensional paintings. A very famous artist that used this method was Leonardo DA Vinci. He painted the very famous painting of Mona Lisa.
During this time period, artists developed specific characteristics in their work, such as realistic proportions and high attention to detail. On of the most influential figures of his time was Leonardo da Vinci, He studied mechanics, anatomy and painting, in all of which he excelled.

Leonardo da Vinci had perform different techniques to complete his master pieces. According to Bishop “Across the whole picture is a hazy aura created by the use of sfumato, a shading technique in which outlines are slightly blurred. Sfumato, also used to supreme effect in the Mona Lisa, imitated the effects of human vision, and was Leonardo’s own variation on the chiaroscuro technique developed by Masaccio and other early Renaissance masters”(pg.207).

Hegel wanted to create a philosophy which would allow the whole universe to be perceived and interpreted through the phenomenon of self-consciousness, Hegel held that the Absolute Spirit, i.e. the consciousness that is aware of itself, can be expressed through art, religion, and philosophy with a greater or lesser degree of perfection.
