AHT 311 - Renaissance and Baroque Art


The artists of the Renaissance and Baroque eras produced some of the most famous art in the Western tradition. Too often, however, these works are viewed in isolation as the products of individual artists, or displayed in museums as isolated specimens of a particular medium. In this course, we will explore developments in European painting, sculpture, and architecture from the 14th to the 17th centuries, considering works of art contextually, as social artifacts and products of a particular place and time. Course readings cover a wide variety of perspectives, from primary sources and early histories to the most recent critical studies of Renaissance and Baroque art and culture. (3 Credits)
