The RenaissanceThe Renaissance is an era that covers 200 years between 1420 and ending around the 1600’s, known as the rebirth. The renaissance marked a renewed interest in many things such as creativity and the arts but also brought about change in the areas of class structure helping to create the middle class, trade, invention and science. These changes have in one way or another influenced nearly every modern day society.The Baroque AgeThe baroque style characterized by the emphasis on unity among the arts. Displayed technical brilliance, these artist achieved a remarkable harmony in painting, sculpture, and architecture, both real and illusionary visual effects. Named after the architectural style of the time, the Baroque period saw artists and composers begin to rebel against the styles that were prevalent during the Renaissance. One of the greatest composers of the period, Johann Sebastian Bach, was able to break new musical ground creating an entirely new style of music. Many scientific discoveries influenced art; Galileo's investigations of the planets, for example, account for astronomical accuracy in many paintings of the time.ArtBefore the Renaissance, paintings and sculptures that were created in the likeness of a human being looked flat and unrealistic.

While searching for time capsules if one was to discover creations dated early by Da Vinci or Michelangelo, such as the “Annunciation” or the pen-and-ink drawing, “A Wide View over a Plain” would be a discovery of the ages.MusicThe responsibilities of performers during the Baroque era were to write music at a furious pace due to the demand. Bach, for example, was responsible for one cantata per week while he was music director at Leipzig. Due to the pace when the music was written, the performers of the pieces had to fill in the details. Locating a time capsule containing early creations by Bach and Handel would be the find of the century.
