Section Information for Fall 2011

Instructor: Prof. Angela Ho This course explores Italian art from circa 1480 to 1570, the period traditionally known as the ‘High Renaissance.’ We will follow the careers of major masters like Botticelli, Leonardo, Raphael, Titian, Michelangelo, and their less well-known but equally interesting contemporaries. We will also explore the urban centers—Venice, Florence, Rome—where these masters produced their works in response to the demands of patrons and institutions. We will study key works of art, sites of production, techniques, patrons, practitioners, and publics. Transformations in artistic practices and representational forms will be related to specific social, political, economic, and cultural conditions.
