Oxford Reinvents the Renaissance

On June 26, 2013, Oxford University Press’s Grove Art Online, in partnership with the National Gallery of Art, launched Italian Renaissance Learning Resources – a free online tool allowing users to explore Italy’s great  period of Renaissance. The website, developed by  Sandbox Studios, features content from the National Gallery of Art and Grove Art Online. Essays augmented by well-produced illustrations escort users through this grand period of rebirth while promoting a true interactive experience. Instructors at both the high school and under-graduate levels will find the site of particular value as it enables them to bring aspects of the classroom lecture into real-time life.
