Context[ edit ] The vastness and diversity of the Portuguese Empire was a key factor behind the Portuguese Renaissance. Diplomats, merchants, students, humanists, scholars, and artists, from all over Europe, were drawn to Portugal during its Renaissance. The maritime trade of the Age of Discovery played a decisive role in the evolution of the Portuguese Renaissance.
Trade intensified contacts with important centers of the Italian Renaissance and it allowed a new commercial bourgeoisie to prosper and have excess funds to become patrons of the Portuguese Renaissance, much like the other Renaissances of Europe.
The contact with the civilizations of Africa and the East led to the importation of numerous objects of ceramics, textiles and furniture, precious woods, ivory and silk, in turn, led to the emergence of new artistic forms resulting cultural exchanges between Europe, and East Africa, through the Portuguese.
The new trade of items with the newly discovered lands is also what allowed the Portuguese Renaissance to be funded, by creating a wealthy Portuguese nobility and merchant class.
It was Portugal's connection, through the vast Portuguese Empireto a full world of trade, culture, and commerce, from Japan to Brazil and from the Azores to Goathat allowed the Portuguese Renaissance to be born.
Portugal's unique ability to interact and colonize other peoples later called Lusotropicalismallowed it fund a flourishing Renaissance of its own, of arts, humanities, religion, and sciences alike, not just in its mainland, but throughout its empire, due to the special link that the Portuguese Empire had to Portugal.
Sciences[ edit ] Pedro Nunes was a great scientist of Europe, innovating maths and inventing many devices, such as the nonius. As the pioneer in Age of Discovery, Portugal and its renaissance attracted experts in astronomy, mathematics, and naval technology, which made Portugal a technical and scientific capital of Europe.
During the Portuguese Renaissance, there was a plethora of technical works being created, such as mappa mundiglobes, treatises on the art of sailing, scripts, reports of shipwrecks, itineraries, and studies on tropical medicine.
Among the treatises on astronomy, oceanography, and nautical studies, major works included the following: He was also the inventor of several measuring apparatus, including the noniusto measure fractions of a degree.
With Vasco da Gama 's arrival in Indiaand the Portuguese Empire's expansion into that land, many scientists were sent eastward to study and compile new drugs and medicinal plants. Cartography[ edit ] Portuguese portolan chart were in great demand in Europe, for their greater knowledge and accuracy.
Although protected as a state secret, the cartographic knowledge would eventually be passed clandestinely by some of those involved in the operation. Portuguese exploration and studies soon revealed the gaps of ancient knowledge, such as how inpassing the Cape of Good Hope, Bartolomeu Dias proved Ptolemy was erroneous in that there was no passage to the Indian Ocean.
InMartin Behaimafter his training in Portugal, and in service to the King of Portugalbuilt the first known globe, which had Europe and Asia were separated by a single ocean, a theory that Christopher Columbuswho was also trained in Portugal, would test later that year.
This is because despite arts flourishing in this time, they did not follow the classicist aesthetic standards on which the Italians built their Renaissance. The arts of the Portuguese Renaissance were unique amongst other Renaissance arts.
They were a mixing of Late Gothic style with the innovations of the fifteenth century and a Portuguese national twist all at once.
The assimilation with the Italian Renaissance arts model only really begins aroundwhen Portuguese Renaissance artists start breaking away from their national norms and adapt their works to the classicist Italian and Spanish model, though still keeping a Portuguese nature.
In terms of architecture, much like many sections of the arts, the Portuguese Renaissance did not, for the most and initial part, follow the paths of the other Renaissances, which heavily focused on the sophistication and simplicity of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
For the larger part of the Portuguese Renaissance, its architecture was largely the continuation and elaboration of the Gothic style. The first known building to be done in Manueline style is the Monastery of Jesus of Setubalby the architect Diogo de Boitacaone of the originators and masters of the style.
Austere Renaissance classicism did not flourish much in the Portuguese Renaissance, but slowly established itself from the s and onward, with the help of both foreigners and nationals, like Francisco de Holanda and Diogo de Torralva.
The Quinta da Bacalhoa and the Casa dos Bicos are good examples of strong classical Renaissance style palaces, which still hold Manueline tendencies. Painting was one of the more distinguishing factors of the Portuguese Renaissance, being one of the more contrasting arts to the other Renaissances of Europe.
Painting in the Portuguese Renaissance was largely sober and almost exclusively religious, being more inline with the Northern Renaissance in nature, not following the pomp and excess of the Italian and Spanish Renaissances. Portuguese Renaissance painting was largely in contact with Flemish style.
While the marriage was in negotiations, the Burgundian court sent the famed Jan van Eyckto paint the Portrait of Isabel of Aviz. Van Eyck remained in Portugal for over a year, where he established a school of art, alongside Olivier de Gand and Jean d'Ypres. His concern of portraying each figure individually, shows heavy Flemish influence, and foreshadows later Renaissance concerns.
A common trend amongst these schools of the Portuguese Renaissance was to give credit to their works of art as a school, and leave the actual author anonymous, making it difficult to attribute authorship.
Even amongst those painters that gave their name to their works, it is complicated to verify the total validity of authorship due to the habit of collective works. The rich Lisbon nobility funded countless paintings, often for either religious institutions in Lisbon or in their feudal estates.Printed in Italy by Conti Tipcolor S.R.L.
