Renaissance Art: Art & Life in 15th-Century Florence

ARTH 4340 The Art of the Renaissance, Summer 1

The course introduces students to culture in 15th-century Florence, within which patrons and artists developed distinctive means of expressing ideas and values that we characterize as Renaissance art. Rather than a series of artists' biographies, individual works are presented in the context of themes and issues. Knowledge of these representative themes, in turn, offers the means to explore works of art in terms of relationships to such factors as religious ideology; patrons' concerns & artists' interests; humanism, civic identity, & religion; interplay between "scientific" attitudes and emergent art theory; and issues of gender.

Instructor: Dr. Brian Steele
