HART211 Romanesque and Gothic Art 3 cr.


European art and architecture produced between the years 1000 and 1400. Focus will be on figural and decorative arts (monumental and miniature painting, stained glass, sculpture, and metalwork) and on architecture as a physical context for monumental public images. The functions of objects and the audiences for whom they were made will be considered along with their styles, subject matter, techniques and materials. Medieval ideas about sight, vision, and representation will be examined as essential to an understanding of the art of this era.
