Bruce Cole Renaissance Images and Ideals Renaissance artists expressed and created the consciousness of society: no better example of  this than portraiture. Portraiture: showed individual’s appearance and place in society but also displayed how  renaissance society viewed itself, the past, and the future. Type portraitures: began in late 14 th  century, individual depicted at type-character rather than  them self. Examples: old, middle-aged, ugly, solider Simone Martini’s  Guidoriccio  (middle-aged soldier of fortune/not individual) About middle of 15 th  century this changed, artists began to approximate face of the sitter.  Usually idealized and schematized. Roman portraits often did this, humanist/classical theme  plus a little naturalism. Reason for change: development of desire to be remembered after death Paolo Uccello  Portrait of a Young Man  1450: profile portrait where focus is on abstract
