Venice in the Golden Age
ARHA 227
Fall 2012
Section: 01  

Venice--a city built almost impossibly on a forest of stilts sunk into the mud of the lagoon and buttressed by powerful myths of divine origins, permanence, and prosperity--produced some of the most spectacular works of Renaissance art and architecture. This course on the art and culture of Venice's "golden age" considers the works of artists and architects such as Carpaccio, Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, Codussi, Sansovino, and Palladio in the context of the city's unique setting, social and governmental structure, cultural and political milieu, and larger geopolitical significance. It also positions Venice's artistic production within the broader framework of early modern Europe, exploring its connections with Byzantium and the Islamic world.
