Plague and its Affect on the Artistic Production in the 14th Century Italy
In the year 1348 the Black Death had officially reached Italy. The plague affected the artistic production in many ways. It took many peoples lives and with all the suffering most of the laws had just disappeared. The plague has been one of the most infavorable diseases to severly interfere with health. The Black Death had made people start to form their own religous views because the Italians had already read and studied the bible. Many different types of art started to become more popular. Artist did more asymmetrical art along with the symmetrical art. The Black Death was very tragic, but it made more of the realistic art become more greatful than the mediveal art. So the Black Death made art more appreciated.
