Fine Arts | 16th-Century Visual Culture in Northern Europe (Topics in Art History) (UG only)
A490 | 16291 | Rothstein


This course deals with major themes and images from the Renaissance
in England, France, Germany, and the Low Countries. Though the
syllabus follows a largely thematic structure, we will discuss
notable painters and sculptors including, Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter
Bruegel the Elder, Albrecht Dürer, Jan Gossaert, Quinten Massys,
Antonis Mor, and Veit Stoss. Some of the issues at stake in this
class include landscape and vicarious travel, assertions of artistic
and intellectual self-sufficiency, forms of visual play, and the
relationship between print and interpretive conflict.
