Venice during the Renaissance and Mannerism

During the Renaissance Venice became a very important center, together with Florence and Rome. Art in Venice was mostly representational. During this period, schools were very important: they were generally professional associations dedicated to saints, in honour of which artists worked.

Padua replaced Venice as the most dominant and advanced in humanistic, scientific and classical culture. Noble families such as the Vendramin, Contarini, Grimani and Venier were vital in giving a push to the development of art.
