HART222 Artistic Personality in the Renaissance I: The Early Renaissance 3 cr.

Artistic Personality in the Renaissance I: The Early Renaissance is the first part in a two-part sequence, opening in the fall semester with an investigation of Italian art in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Students will concentrate on those artists whose works signal the transition from the Early to the High Renaissance, a brief period when Western culture finds a spectacular climax in the artistic productions of Florence, Rome and Venice, and when such work comes to be known, imported, emulated and revered throughout Western Europe and beyond. Primary sources, and above all the artistic biographies of Giorgio Vasari, will be complemented by modern and contemporary scholastic commentaries. Artists include Giotto, Duccio, Masaccio, Brunelleschi, Alberti, Donatello.
