The art of the Gothic period in Italy (1300-1400), also called The Trecento, was uncharacteristic from the typical Gothic style used throughout Europe.  Italian architecture was distinct and in some regions painting adhered to Byzantine influence.  However, a new style of painting emerged that revolutionized the art of Florence and eventually that of the entire Western world.  A major shift in art commenced that was inspired from ancient Greece and Rome, eventually leading and developing as the catalyst that heralded the Italian Renaissance in Florence. Frescoes from the Roman catacombs reveal the earliest themes of Christian art. We will conclude by examining the 5th and early 6th century churches of Ravenna.
