Fine Arts | Topics in Art History: Sinners & Saints in Renaissance Art
A200 | 14336 | Goodman, Anna


This course will examine the ways in which devotional art provided
Italian Renaissance society with opportunities to express not only
their piety and hopes for future salvation, but political
allegiances, military prowess, attitudes toward gender roles and the
importance of family, and belief in the miraculous.  We will discuss
how style and site-specificity allowed artists such as Raphael,
Michelangelo, and Titian to communicate these layers of meaning to
their viewers.
