In both north and south, artists strove to perfect realism in their art and began to analyse nature and the human body. This detailed realism was greatly respected in Italy, but there was little reciprocal influence on the North until nearly the end of the 15th century.

The layout of the land might have also played a significant role on how the Renaissance took place in the Northern and Southern parts of Europe. Hokanson, Melanie Holcomb, Mellissa J. Treasures of the decorative arts of Northern Europe include a series of stained-glass panels from Belgium illustrating the Gospels, a Flemish tapestry with allegorical representations of the Twelve Ages of Man, and an example of the famous hafnerware from Germany.

The church had originally exerted control over the masses by keeping them in the dark so to speak, by not encouraging them to investigate, explore or question what they were told.
The Renaissance has increased the popularity of works of art and other fields of study including: architecture, literature, sciences, politics, and religion.
It is characterised by a concern with balance, clarity, and proportion, and by the external use of columns and fluted pilasters.
