The Renaissance changed the manner that art was funded and accepted by patrons of the arts rather than the Church being the sole benefactor of Artists: people were exploring, inventing and sculpting and painting like never before. However it was the combination of scientific exploration and artistic freedom which makes the Renaissance the time which appeals to most people when thinking and learning regarding art.
Leonardo Da Vinci was the eventual Renaissance man. He was an inventor, a scientist and an artist. As an apprentice to the Verrocchio, he was exposed to machines, and learned their workings. In his sketch books, researchers have found drawings resembling parachutes, helicopters, war tanks, SCUBA tanks, water lifting devices, crossbows and retractable landing gear for planes and probably more. I don't think of him as a scientist; however he was of the science and art invention that still exists today. He lived during the Renaissance, which was a favorite time for people to think of in history, because the Middle Ages were so rigid, filled with death and governed by the rules of the Catholic Church.
