  • New Techniques: Renaissance artists built on the accomplishments of those before them and developed a variety of new techniques including chiaroscuro, sfumato, extreme foreshortening, etc. How do these innovations push the Renaissance from its early phase to what we now call the ‘High Renaissance?’ Be specific in your answer.
