Credit points: 15
In this subject students will study the extraordinary flowering of creativity that took place in the visual Arts in Italy from 1400 to 1600 in the fields of painting, sculpture and architecture. By placing this art in the context of the major intellectual developments such as the rediscovery of antiquity, humanist philosophy and the cult of the individual, students will be introduced to the key artists and patrons of the period. Through a series of lectures, seminar case studies and gallery visits, students will explore the art of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael Sanzio, Michelangelo Buonarotti, Titian, Mantegna, Botticelli, Bronzino and many others. Students will also be introduced to visual analysis, and the meaning and interpretation of images and relevant theoretical and historical frameworks.
