The Medicis were members of a rich Florentine family who were patrons of the Arts. In those days, an artist made his living by getting commissions from the rich. These were basically orders for art work. The Medicis commissioned art for their personal chapel, for churches they frequented, for the city of Florence which they virtually controlled for some time, etc. Since some of the greatest artists of the Renaissance lived and worked in Florence… Read More
He wrote a book called "The Prince". And I believe he also had a hand in removing the Medicis from power, albeit temporarily.
But he did. He painted a few, but most of his career was filled with commissions from Julius and the Medicis, who wanted other kinds of artwork.
His famous treatise The Prince (1513, published 1532) is a handbook for rulers; though dedicated to http://www.answers.com/topic/lorenzo-de-medici, ruler of Florence from 1513, it failed to win Machiavelli his favour. Machiavelli viewed The Prince as an objective description of political reality. he was hated by the medicis probably beacuse they were offended by the book he wrote for them....
Patrons like the Medicis also contributed greatly to advancements in art during the Renaissance period What did they do to encourage Renaissance art?
They commissioned works by the artists.
· Three of my sons were kings and my daughter was arranged to marry the king of Spain · I created a policy of peace between the Catholics and the Protestants.

He was the writer of Il Principe, a political book in which he discusses questions such as 'is it better to be loved or to be feared'. It was supposedly written as a book of advice to one of the Medicis, who ruled Florence.

They built palaces and kept a strong military. They were involved in all aspects of life in the city. They were great supporters of artists, writers, and musicians. The Medicis also defeated enemies who plotted against the family or even to murder some of its members.
During the Renaissance, Italy consisted of a large number of small states, usually city state, with all sorts of governments, so by the Church, some by nobility, and some run by republican governments. Wealthy merchant and banking families such as the Medicis were particularly powerful.
His most famous paintings are "The Birth of Venus" and "Primavera". But he created many others as well. He was commissioned by very important patrons, such as the Medicis(who controlled Florence) and the Vespuccis(the family of Amerigo Vespucci-for whom America is named). His works are very important to understanding Renaissance art and culture. For more information, go to link below!
Michelangelo was getting tired of the Medici Family so he carved David as a symbol of independence. The Medici family was considered the Goliath. This, however, backfired because David was so wonderful the Medicis wanted more and more art. Another answer: The gonfaloniere Piero Soderini commissioned michelangelo to sculpt David for the Florence Cathedral.

After about one year of learning the art of fresco, Michelangelo went on to study at the sculpture school in the Medici gardens. He then lived in the household… Read More
Yes, very much so. Throughout Northern Europe, diaspora Jews had built a significant business lending money, often to governments to finance the many wars. In Italy the great merchant families (like the Medicis in Florence) expanded their merchant businesses into lending their wealth, and to holding money for others in their stronghouses. They lent these "deposits" and thus what we know as banking was born.
One of those definite tyrants that did so much good for his people as to have the tyrant-haters wondering if they are all the thoroughly evil devils they're made up to be. Florence had never before seen such proseperity, nor would they again. It's the Medicis' ridiculously undemocratic means for achieving Florence's success that has historians (living in democratic countries) hesitant to praise the benevolent bully.
There's some information out there, but you're going to have to look really hard for it. But unless you specifically need to know who they are, I wouldn't worry about them. They weren't famous, and didn't contribute to his art. His teacher(Fra Filippo Lippi) along with patrons and religious leaders(specifically the Medicis, Vespuccis, and Savanarola) were the ones that affected his subject matter. If you want more information on Savanarola, or the impact of patrons… Read More

yes duhh The Battle of SAN ROMANO was fought in June, 1432. Ucello painted at least three versions of the fight between the Italian city-states of FLORENCE and SIENA. This was a victory for the Florentines, and his main panel may have hung in the Palace of the Medicis in Florence. In his painting, Paolo Ucello glorifies the victorious Florentines as they "rout" the Sienese amidst the striking orange groves and rose arbors which beautify… Read More

The rise of mercantilism was very important in the Late Middle Ages, and in many ways paved the way for the Renaissance. The Italian bankers, such as the Medicis, and the Northern European merchants who banded into the Hanseatic League, rivaled countries in power and authority. The Hanseatic League even had its own navy and separate treaties. This lead to the decline of the authority of the nobility, and to the decline in the authority… Read More

The palace was built in 1559 for one of the Medicis of Italy with gardens in the Tuscan style. The garden was re-landscaped in 1664 in the formal French style. It is now surrounded by… Read More
The Louvre is ever changing. On the official web site is the quote 'Open to all since 1793'.

At the beginning of the Renaissance rich families in Florence became patrons of the arts in order to?
The wealthy families in Florence became patrons of the arts mainly to show off their wealth. With the influx of trade coming through Florence, the wealthy families, such as the Medicis, had more money to spend on luxuries. One such luxury was having their portraits painted. In addition, the Renaissance ideals, such as Humanism led to the wealthy becoming patrons of art. But they mostly became patrons of the arts to showcase their wealth. display… Read More
Catherine de Medicis, Regent during the minority of her sons François II and Charles IX, needed a palace of her own. She chose a site half a kilometre from the Louvre and outside the walls, where she pulled down an old tile-factory (Tuilerie) so that her architect Philibert Delorme could build the long, narrow Palais des Tuileries. This later became part of the Louvre, but was burnt down during the Commune in 1871. For the… Read More
How did Pharaoh Taharqa and other Kushite pharaohs of Dynasty 25 help bring back the glory of Egypt?
The Nubian Pharaohs" of the 25th Dynasty ruled with an enlightened benevolence. They were Medicis (patrons of art and literature), rather than Caesars, who awoke Egypt to the artistic and cultural splendor of its own past as they patronized artists, revived lost learning and rebuilt derelict temples. I hope this answers your question. I received this information from Dr. Alonzo M. Jones. I believe he said that this quote came from the Smithsonian. He has… Read More

Machiavelli has been called the brilliant creator of modern political science by some, and a cynical beast by others; he is considered the originator of the idea of a political pragmatism that says "the end justifies the means." Either way, his 1513 book The Prince is a landmark work in the history of political power. A high-level statesman in Florence (1498-1512), he travelled on diplomatic missions throughout Europe before he was exiled by the Medicis… Read More
Savanarola burned anything that he viewed as 'earthly pleasures', in 'bonfires of the vanities'. These bonfires burned some of Botticelli's works, which is why there is such a small number after his LONG career. Some say Botticelli followed Savanarola, and that is why he stopped making Mythological paintings. Others says the threat of Savanarola burning Mythological paintings was enough to make him stop. Either way, he stopped with the Mythological themes, and reverted back to… Read More

Both Giovanni and Guilio entered the church (as a cardinal and a priest, respectively). Both would later become Popes (Leo X and Clement VII). The de' Medici family had a love-hate relationship with Florence, sometimes banished, sometimes hunted and sometimes worshiped. Michelangelo's David was in fact made by… Read More
