Italian painting began to develop beyond the influence of Byzantium in the Duecento or 13th century, maintaining its lead throughout the Italian Renaissance, and reaching a particular peak in the High Renaissance of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael. Italy retained its artistic dominance into the 17th century with Mannerism and the Baroque. In the 18th century Neoclassicism originated in Rome, but this was the last such Italian-born style that spread to all Western art.
