This course explores the representation of the skin in the visual arts from the Renaissance up until the mid-19th century. Drawing upon analytical resources from multiple disciplines, it will consider art theoretical discussions around flesh tones; the significance of different ways to depict skin; technical aspects of the rendering of skin in painting and sculpture; the intersection of anatomy and depictions of the body surface; and relevant material from the history of medicine and anthropology. The course will focus on European art from 1500-1850.
