Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Albrecht Dürer, known as a “German Leonardo”, after Leonardo da Vinci, the “Renaissance man”, was not named after such a special being for naught. Alike to da Vinci, Dürer was an artist and more. In 1494, he learned the techniques of the Italian Renaissance men that came before him.
  • Dürer Studies in Italy
  • After my studies, I brought my newfound techniques to Germany. I took these techniques to heart, using them not only for paintings, but engravings, a type of art where the artist carves a design on metal plates with acid. I also wrote essays to teach learned people in his homeland, helping spread the Renaissance further north.
  • His Teachings and Skills
  • A good humanist supports and creates of the arts, and Dürer was certainly one. Dürer was a creative and learned man, deserving of his title of the “German Leonardo”. He pushed the Renaissance north, just as how da Vinci started the Renaissance in the first place. Plus, Dürer was a “Renaissance man” and a humanist, doing many things like writing and painting and etching. France, Germany, and England joined Italy in the movement of the Renaissance at least partly because of the “German Leonardo”, Albrecht Dürer.
  • Dürer, Humanist?
  • Shakespeare, the famous poet and writer himself, wrote in England. He, just like the other “Renaissance men” that pushed the effects of the movement towards him, started to spread it to the common man. With his relatable plays, he acted his way to the history books.
  • Shakespeare 1564-1616
  • "To be or not to be, that is the question”. The question if I, the honorable and influential poet, a humanist, is for naught. There is but no reason why one should question my contributions to the Renaissance movement. I brought the Renaissance to the people! I showed them art in the first degree. They came to my plays at an affordable price, and they watched my comedies, tragedies, or dramas.
  • Shakespeare's Influence
  • He, Shakespeare, is but one of if not the most “Renaissance-like” “Renaissance men”, a true humanist, one who spreads the importance of the "here and now" and creates true art. He created moving plays that brought the people to the Renaissance. With his beautiful plays in hand, he made his way to history books and is still teaching students about the Renaissance beyond the grave.
  • Shakespeare's Humanism
