Humanism as it pertains to art is the focus on the accurate portrayal of the Human form in art. The ancient Greeks also focused on capturing human emotion in their art, so it was not just about form but also about human thoughts and emotions. The key shift is not that religion was no longer important, but that the Human form was now emphasized and included. Portraying the gods in a human form is a obvious example of humanism.
