It is known that a number of exceptional and highly impressive astronomical events have been represented in artworks made in past centuries. However, no systematic survey of figurative Medieval and Renaissance art has been performed to date, in order to analyzing the role of transient astronomical events as inspiration sources of artworks in these epochs. We have thus started to build up a data-base including a significant number of artworks, dated between the 9th and 16th Century and representing figurative elements in some way connected with Astronomy, in order to evaluate if they have been influenced by coeval extraordinary astronomical events. In this work, we analyze a first set of Renaissance artworks. The data base: 193 episodes.
