Art was also Important because it enforced humanism ideas like realism and perspective. Realism was making drawings and paintings look like real life people and perspective was making Three dimensional objects onto a two dimensional surface.


Art contributed to the growth of the Renaissance by supporting the humanism ideals. Art supported humanism because in the middle ages all paintings were about god and saints, but during the Renaissance the art involved people and barely any religiously figures.
