  • Overview

    The Arts of Renaissance and Baroque is an introductory course that surveys the development of painting, sculpture and architecture from the 14th to the 18th centuries, focusing on the arts in Rome and across Italy, and exploring connections to these artistic traditions as they expanded throughout Europe. The course focuses on Rome, that hosted some of the major Renaissance artists (such as Michelangelo and Raphael) and was the cradle of the Baroque revolution. Classes and on-site visits aim to offer an appreciation of particular works of art by investigating the context in which they were produced and the various functions they were expected to serve.
