Italian Renaissance Art

Conducted in English

This art history course gives the student a unique and stimulating opportunity to study Renaissance art in Florence, the city of its birth. Equally divided between slide lectures and on-site teaching, the course will cover Renaissance painting, sculpture, and architecture from 1400 to 1500. Students will not only learn to identify the individual styles of such artists as Donatello, Masaccio, Fra Angelico, Botticelli, Verrocchio, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michelangelo, but they will also be able to relate their work to the social, political, and cultural contexts of the time. The itinerary includes the Uffizi Gallery, the Bargello Museum, the Accademia, and the Churches of Santa Maria Novella and San Lorenzo. Museum visits form an integral part of this course.  

Classes are scheduled Monday to Friday

Travel during class time is strictly prohibited.
