This piece was created around 1510. What is so significant is that the backround is very detailed as well as the focus on the people that are the main focus of this painting. I found this piece interesting because I think that it is a beautiful painting with fantasic scenery and great meaning behind it, though this is only my opinion. This painting reflects humanism due to the fact that it shows the evolution of man. It shows the younger, learning man, the older man, and the wise, old man.
