ARTH 2238 Renaissance Art and Architecture in Florence (Summer: 3 )


Course Description

This course studies painting, sculpture, and architecture in Florence during the Renaissance, c. 1300-1600. Studying the art of this period in its original location, we seek to understand the relationship between the art of Florence and the city's history, society and culture as it changed over three centuries. We investigate why art was made and what message it conveyed. Topics of discussion include religious versus civic imagery, the role of the artist, private and institutional patronage, humanism, the rise of domestic art, and urbanism.
