Some 20,000 workers labored for 22 years to build the famous tomb. It is made of white marble brought from 250 miles away. The minaret towers are about 130 feet high. The building itself is 186 feet square. The design of the building is a blend of Hindu and Muslim styles. The pointed arches are of Muslim design, and the perforated marble windows and doors are typical of a style found in Hindu temples. The inside of the building is a glittering garden of thousands of carved marble flowers inlaid with tiny precious stones. One tiny flower, one inch square, had 60 different inlays.

The Renaissance in Italy produced extraordinary achievements in many different forms of art, including painting, architecture, sculpture, and drawing. These art forms were used by talented artists to express important ideas and attitudes of the age. The value of humanism is shown in Raphael’s School of Athens, a depiction of the greatest Greek philosophers . The realism of Renaissance art is seen in a portrait such as the Mona Lisa, which is an expression of the subject’s unique features and personality. And Michelangelo’s David shares stylistic qualities with ancient Greek and Roman sculpture.

Renaissance Ideas Influence Renaissance Art

▼ Classical and Renaissance Sculpture

Michelangelo Influenced by classical statues, Michelangelo sculpted David from 1501 to 1504. Michelangelo portrayed the biblical hero in the moments just before battle. David’s posture is graceful, yet his figure also displays strength. The statue, which is 18 feet tall, towers over the viewer.

▲ Portraying Individuals

Da Vinci The Mona Lisa (c. 1504–1506) is thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, who, at 16, married Francesco del Giocondo, a wealthy merchant of Florence who commissioned the portrait. Mona Lisa is a shortened form of Madonna Lisa (Madam, or My Lady, Lisa). Renaissance artists showed individuals as they really looked.

Revolutions Across Time
Revolution—which is a sudden or significant change in the old ways of doing things— can occur in many areas, such as government, technology, or art. In Unit 2, you studied political revolutions in Europe and the Americas, in which people rebelled against unjust rulers to gain more rights. Each revolution led to major changes in governmental, social, and economic structures. In these six pages, you will gain a better understanding of those revolutions by examining their similarities and differences.
English Civil War and Glorious Revolution
In 1642, civil war broke out between those who supported Parliament and those who supported the king. Parliament won and set up a commonwealth, led by Oliver Cromwell. In time, he became a dictator. After his death, the monarchy returned, but tensions built anew. In 1688, Parliament ousted King James II, shown at right, in the Glorious Revolution and invited William and Mary to rule.

Model of a Revolution
From his study of the French Revolution, historian Crane Brinton developed a model of the stages that revolutions often go through. The model below is based on his work. Compare it with the revolutions you learned about in this unit.

Fall of the Old Order
Revolutions usually cannot occur until a ruler becomes weak. Often this weakness results in problems such as starvation and unfair taxes. Anger builds until the ruler is overthrown.

396 520 666

Rule by Moderates
The people relax because they think they have achieved their goal. A moderate group rules. But simply overthrowing the old order rarely solves the problems that led to the revolution.

The Terror American Revolution
After 1763, Americans began to resent British rule. Clashes such as the Boston Massacre, shown at left, took place. The colonies declared their independence in 1776. War ensued, and the United States won its freedom by defeating Britain.

French Revolution
Beginning in 1789, the French people rose up to overthrow their king. The uprisings included the march by hungry women shown below. Differing goals soon split the revolutionaries. Several years of terror followed. Napoleon restored order and eventually made himself emperor of France.

Latin American Revolutions
From 1791 to 1824, revolutions took place in Haiti, Mexico, and the huge Spanish empire that spread across Central and South America. By the end of that period, nearly all of Latin America had gained its independence from European control. One of South America’s great liberators was José de San Martín, shown in the painting above.

When people realize that the old problems still exist, they look for someone to blame. Radicals take control, push for more extreme changes, and execute “enemies of the revolution.”

Turn from Radical Rule
In time, the violence sickens people, and the use of terror ends. The former radicals adopt a more gradual plan for effecting change.

Military Rule
The terror often kills most of a country’s leaders. Then the turn from radicalism makes people doubt revolutionary ideals. A military leader steps into the gap and becomes dictator.

When the dictatorship ends, through death or overthrow, a power vacuum results. The order that existed before the revolution is restored.

1. Which of the revolutions on the time
line, besides the French Revolution, is most like the model? Explain.

2. Which revolution is least like the
model? Explain.
