HART232 Seventeenth-Century Baroque Art 3 cr.


This course will examine the works of major artists in the seventeenth century in Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and France. The work of Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Bernini, Rubens, Rembrandt, Velazquez, Poussin, and others will be considered in the context of religion, politics, and patronage. Special emphasis will be placed on the widespread diffusion of Baroque trends, which was stimulated not only by ongoing artistic dialogues, but also trade, exploration, and colonization.
