Explore the origins of the Italian Renaissance in our new exhibition Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance, 1300–1350. Unprecedented prosperity, urban expansion, and intellectual innovation in Florence at the time led to a new demand for artistic production throughout the city. Artists like Giotto di Bondone and Pacino di Bonaguida developed new ways of representing the world, and worked in multiple mediums, including paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and stained glass.

Explore the following topics with your lesson plans and interactive webpages:

• Books in the era before printing: Looking at Illuminated Manuscripts: Exploring an Illuminated Manuscript Page
Merchants, Their Book of Hymns, and Two Painters: The Laudario of Sant'Agnes, Pacino di Bonaguida and the Master of the Dominican Effigies
