CONTENT

This course aims to enable an understanding of the modes of visuality of Renaissance art through analyses of the works of prominent artists of the period, such as Giotto, Masaccio, Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Michelangelo Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian and Tintoretto. The art of the Renaissance will be considered in relation to Renaissance culture at large, social and political. The significance of Renaissance modes of visuality since Renaissance culture will also be assessed. For the possibility of being taken as an undergraduate course, subject to adjusted work requirements, see HART 311

OBJECTIVE

This course is an introduction to the art of the Italian Renaissance. Students will have the opportunity to examine and discuss how revolutionary experiments in the visual arts interacted with bold new ideas and perceptions of the world. Through lectures and discussions students will discover how the Renaissance mode of representation reflected the overall cultural climate and especially the intellectual discourse of humanistic circles.
