genius comes in packs

A solitary genius is easy to understand, but dozens of them, in a space of two generations? What made the Renaissance era one of the most creatively explosive times in our history?

Prosperity, which provided money and markets to support art

Peace, which provided the stability to seek artistic and philosophical progress

Freedom, which liberated artists from stage or religious control

Social mobility, which allowed talented poor people to enter the arts

The paradigm thing, which brought new perspectives and mediums that created a wave of originality and expression.
