This course covers 17th century Italian art, with a focus on Rome, and the evolution of the Baroque style, which begins
as a reaction against Mannerism. In the Carracci Academy in Bologna, the emphasis was on looking at nature, as well as
Greco-Roman masterpieces and High Renaissance masters. There will be one unit on architecture and another on sculpture.
Caravaggio began a parallel movement of intense naturalism, which had a great number of followers. We will continue with
High Baroque and awesome examples of ceiling decoration. There was also an undercurrent of “philosopher-painters” who
selected unusual historical and religious themes, scenes of witchcraft, and stoic philosophers contemplating the human
condition. Finally, if time allows, we will cover landscape, genre painting and still-life. The Zoom format is still experimental and the goals of the original course may have to be altered.
