Fine Arts | Italian Art of the 16th Century (UG)
A432 | 24833 | Knox
This lecture and discussion course will investigate art in Italy
during one of its most important and influential centuries. We will
focus much of our time on the artists of central Italy during the
High Renaissance, including such luminaries as Leonardo da Vinci,
Raphael, and Michelangelo. In addition, we will examine the
puzzling phenomenon of Mannerism (Pontormo, Rosso, Bronzino,
Parmigianino) and the warm, painterly naturalism of Venetian art
(Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese).
Students will write a research paper and present the
findings of this study to the rest of the class.
This course meets with FINA-A532 (GR)
