Section Information for Spring 2017

This course explores developments in the visual arts and architecture in 15th and 16th-century Italy and includes such artists as Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael in central Italy, Giorgione and Titian in Venice, as well as the Mannerist artists such as Pontormo and Parmigianino.  It is partly a chronological survey and partly a thematic exploration of important issues—the social construction of the artist; the role of the patron; the concept of humanism; and the importance of the original location for the understanding and interpretation of Renaissance art.

Satisfies General Education requirement for Arts.
