Sometime during the 15th century, classical culture began popping up all over Europe. For example, The Strife of Love in A Dream was an early book printed by the Gutenberg press. It included pictures. Its plot was pagan.
The Florentine Picture Chronicle by a talented, anonymous artist includes drawings of Adam and Eve, Achilles, Ganymede and many more in classical style. So Christian ideals were slowly blending with classical culture. This included architecture, drawing, sculpture, painting, etc.
An example of architecture was the studiolo. A small room decorated with painting and imagery to inspire self-contemplation.
