Although the Renaissance brought about completely different ideas of what art was and what it was to be used for than medieval art, the two categories are frequently grouped together. However, the Renaissance was largely concerned with depicting objects as they really were which was in direct contrast with medieval techniques. However, it can be argued that without the popularity of medieval artwork throughout Europe, art as it's known today wouldn't exist and the Renaissance would have never happened.
Contemporary artists still produce medieval artwork, although it has little in common with the traditional definition of this category. Instead, modern artists depict the mythology and growing culture of that time period. Arthurian legends, in particular, are of interest to modern artists, as are depictions of knights, festivals, nobles, and other elements of the time.
For collectors and enthusiasts however, medieval art was the turning point of mankind and both modern and traditional depictions of this period are popular.
