Course Description

Prerequisites: 01:082:105 and 01:082:214 or permission from the instructor.

Italian art and architecture from ca. 1250 to ca. 1400 with an emphasis on the stylistic and thematic innovations of Giotto and his successors and the developments of the schools of Florence, Siena, and Venice.

 

There will be a class held at the Metropolitan Museum, a mid-term and a final exam, as well as a short research paper.The course will investigate the development of a humanized, expressive interpretation in religious art, a fuller visual expression of secular themes, and the ways in which art and architecture served to construct civic identity and pride in the peninsula’s independent city-states, as well as to meet the objectives of its patrons, whether male or female, secular or religious.
