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


Students undertake an investigation of Italian
art in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.
Students will concentrate onthose 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.
