Baroque and renaissance are two different periods and works in art. The renaissance period in the history of art commenced in Italy, as far back as the 1400s. Italy and Paris are together referred to as the art capital of the world today. This period was an essential moment in the history of Europe, and it aids the transition from the medieval period to the early modern age.
Thereafter in the 1600s, during the time the church was dividing between Roman Catholics and Protestants, the baroque era also came with new transformation. Many works that were done in this era were recreated works from the renaissance era.
Several people, especially the art connoisseurs and modern artists, are well aware of the artists of the renaissance period, such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. However, the baroque era did not make enough meaning to people like the renaissance era, which makes the artists of them not to be well known.
