The transition from the Gothic to the Renaissance period showed subjects in which details of the two periods were mixed. Often Gothic architectural forms were used with human figures dressed in Renaissance and classic costumes. The perspective of the pictures improved. More detailed modeling of draperies and clothing was attempted, and both Roman and Gothic letters were used.
The tapestry weaving of the Renaissance assumed its definite character when Raphael made for a series of cartoons for Pope Leo X illustrating the Acts of the Apostles. Raphael was not a weaver, and knew little of the art of weaving or of tapestry texture. The greatness of the artist as a painter misled the world, and caused the critics of his day to admire the work that was executed from these cartoons.
