    Medieval art: Mostly religious; very focused on creating symbols of Christian concepts/values; not concerned with realism. Served a purpose: "Before a worshipper has even entered the church, he would find images of saints and sinners, of angelic beings and the punishment of the damned. All stood as a reminder of the importance of holding one's thoughts to God." Statues were shallow and flat. Bodies might be out of proportion. Renaissance art: Very focused on realism--on portraying things as they look. Used linear perspective in painting. Not as focused on religion. Often used to show the beauty in nature (including human beings). Often depicted everyday life. Used light and shadow.
