Here is a Prezi I created for one of my classes. It is a brief overview of the early Renaissance. Feel free to ignore the other artists mentioned for now, unless you would like to read ahead. I will over them in greater detail in the upcoming episodes. You will want to skip ahead several slides for the Gates of Paradise. Prezi allows you to zoom in on each panel for greater detail. I am also including images of the Gates as well as the Duomo. Also here is a link to a great article that explains the herringbone brick pattern of the Dome.
