A survey of European art from 1400-1750, including all arts, but emphasizing painting and the analysis of works by such major artists as Donatello, Botticelli, Jan van Eyck, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Rembrandt, and Vermeer. We examine the social, religious, and political context, the role of patrons in the creative process, and the response of viewers. Some of the themes of the course include the function of art in religious devotion, moral and social concerns reflected in visual images, changing notions of the individual in society, the roles of male and female, and the theme of love.

When Offered Fall.
