INTRODUCTIONThe Renaissance, which means “rebirth”, is the period between the 14thand 17thCentury that followed the Middle Ages. It was centered on the anthropocentric belief that man was the center of the universe. This period brought a radical cultural, artistic, political and scientific change to European society. (Renaissance, n.d.)The rise of humanistic thinking led to questioning the status quo, to encouraging experimentation and observation of nature and the physical world to solve the problems of the time. (Renaissance, n.d.)Science, from pure math to the new discoveries in astronomy, biology, botany and philosophy had a major influence in the different forms of art of the time. Science was the tool tounderstand the new social, artistic and cultural order.Science revealed the errors of the past and generated a new reality. There is perfection in nature, in space, in movement where everything is in constant interaction and convergence leading to a new way of viewing, interpreting and presenting reality.During the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods, art freed itself from the grasp of the church and looked towards the outside world. Artists became curious of their surroundings and started to explore what was happening in the sciences leading to a symbiosis between art andscience.
