This class will serve as a continuation of the content covered
in Renaissance Art and Architecture in Florence, Italy, but can
also stand alone as a course on the High Renaissance in Italy.
We will discuss the art and architecture of the High Renaissance
in Florence, Rome, and Venice, Italy in the late 15th and first
half of the 16th centuries, and the unique partnership that
occurred in Renaissance Italy between artists, patrons, and the
community at large. We will examine art commissioned by the
church and by private patrons, as well as the art commissioned
by the ducal court of Mantua, and will discuss the major artistic
currents of the time. In addition to considering key themes
such as the revival of antiquity, religious devotion, and artistic
style, we will survey significant works by artists and architects
including Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Giorgione, and
Titian, to name but a few.
