Italian Art and Architecture of the 16th Century
ARHA 224
Spring 2008
Section: 01  

In addition to key monuments of 16th-century Italian art and architecture, this survey seeks to introduce students to some of the most important figures of the period: artists and architects - such as Leonardo, Raphael, Bronzino, Michelangelo, Titian, and Palladio; their princely and ecclesiastical patrons - such as Cosimo I de'Medici and Julius II; and their critics and biographers - such as Dolce and Vasari. Our aim will be to understand the complex artistic and architectural landscape of the period against the backdrop of shifting intellectual and religious trends, such as the Counter-Reformation. Class discussions will be based on close readings of primary sources and scholarly texts on a wide range of topics.
