Check out all the pieces of art in the "Selected Works of the Renaissance" I have curated for you. Choose one piece of art and learn more about it independently. Read the article about the artist and the specific work of art. Then answer these questions in your blog post:

Q1: Which piece of art did you choose and who is the artist?
Q2: According to your research and observations, why do you believe the artist created this work?
Q3: It is said that "the best Renaissance art has the power to speak to people across time." In what ways does this piece speak to you, some 500 years after it was created? If this piece of art could talk, what would it say?
Q4: In your opinion, what is the most interesting or thought-provoking part of the painting or sculpture? Take a screenshot and share in a paragraph of 3-5 sentences why this particular part of the piece is interesting.
