Quattrocento

 

an Italian term for the 15th century. In art studies the term refers to the period of the Early Renaissance in Italy. Quattrocento art, which reflected the Renaissance life-affirming world view, is marked by the poetic integrity of the perception of the world and by a search for new, scientifically based means of representing the real world. The 15th century was distinguished by the presence of a great number of artistic individuals and schools in Italy. The work of F. Brunelleschi and L. B. Alberti in architecture, of Donatello in sculpture, and of Masaccio, Piero della Francesca, Mantegna, and Giovanni Bellini in painting played a leading role in the formation of innovative Renaissance art forms during the quattrocento.
