ARTH 3347 Age of Baroque: Seventeen Century Art in Italy (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course will study the painting, sculpture, architecture, and urban development of Italy during the late sixteenth and seventeenth century. We will focus on the abundant artistic projects in Rome, the home to the papacy and the birthplace of the Baroque. Particular emphasis will be placed on the relationship between artistic endeavors and powerful patrons, many of whom were members of the Roman Catholic Church. We will investigate the meanings and uses of art in relation to its social and cultural contexts to understand how art served both sacred and secular goals.
