We have been indulging in the arts and have used art as a way to express and interact with the people surrounding us. To the carved images on rocks, and to the cartoons shown on the TV, the evolution of Graphic Design has shown us the importance of typography, photographers, illustrators etc. have on our society. When paper, ink, and pencils didn’t exist, our ancestors would carve their warnings, messages, and emotions on rocks and walls. Our ancestors don’t realize that such small acts such as these was the beginning of a huge movement, that wouldn’t be recognized until thousands years later. During the 16th century, China was able to establish a technique called woodblock printing or, the application of ink on raised curved surface, that allowed multiple text and images to be made quickly. China’s wide extension of printing slowly reached the middle east and caused Europe to start producing woodblock broadsides and printed books.

Upon discovering they could grow and harvest food, these peoples shifted from a nomadic lifestyle to a settled one. Due to this change, human tribes were able to advance into a civilization. These people then had the leisure to think, create and imagine, and one of the many culminations from this new era was art.

People who treasured art ranged from upper class to middle class, or lower class (“Patrons and Artist in Late 15th-Century Florence”). Much of the artists that were called by patrons in the courts because their projects came from southern Netherland cities such as: Burges, Brussels, Ghent, and Toumai (Davies et al. 476). Apparently, the patrons harbored a lot of jealousy of the unique status their artistic charges, that of independency in addition to the privileges

He explains, “Freestanding, larger-than-life-size statues of human beings were sculpted for the first time since antiquity” (3). During the Classical age, huge statues of human could be found in the history in which scientific ideas were required to design and to sculpt it appropriately. Artists of Renaissance revived the way of sculpting as well as painting of Greek and Roman culture where they used techniques from math as well as science. The influence of classical culture transformed the art and the way of making it by using scientific knowledge of drawing and sculpting, and provided it a sense human importance on the artistic works.
