Renaissance Art and Architecture in Italy|
Spring 2013 not offered
This course surveys key monuments of Italian art and architecture produced between circa 1300 and 1550. Focusing on major centers such as Florence, Rome, and Venice, as well as smaller courts such as Urbino and Mantua, it considers the works and careers of the most important artists and architects of the period, among them Giotto, Brunelleschi, Alberti, Leonardo, and Michelangelo. Monuments are studied in their broader intellectual, political, and religious context, with particular attention paid to issues of patronage, devotion, and gender. Class discussions will focus on topics drawn from primary and secondary source readings and will include the rising status of the artist, the rediscovery of man and nature, the science of painting, and the cult of antiquity.
