Artists by Movement:
The High Renaissance

Centered in Italy, Early 16th Century

The High Renaissance was the culmination of the artistic developments of the Early Renaissance, and one of the great explosions of creative genius in history. It is notable for three of the greatest artists in history: Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael Sanzio and Leonardo da Vinci.

Also active at this time were such masters as Giorgione, Titian and Giovanni Bellini.

By about the 1520s, High Renaissance art had become exaggerated into the style known as Mannerism.
