ARTH 3332 The Age of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Beyond: Sixteenth Century Art in Italy (Spring: 3 )
The course begins with High Renaissance, of brief duration (1500-1520) but whose artists, especially Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael, attained a level of creative accomplishment that served as a model for years to come. Some key themes include: the development of style, artistic competition, relationships between patrons and artists, restoration of Rome to its ancient glory, and the competing artistic developments in Venice. The second part of the course will trace the development of art after Raphael's death in 1520, understand how Michelangelo's art continuously evolved, and how other artists reacted to the challenge of the High Renaissance.
