ARTH 2400

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017. Courses of Study 2017-2018 is scheduled to publish mid-June.

A survey of European art from 1400-1750, including all arts but emphasizing painting and analysis of the works of such major artists as Jan van Eyck, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Rembrandt, and Vermeer.  We will view the art through their social, religious, and political contexts, the role of patrons in the creative process, and the response of viewers.  Major issues include the function of art in religious devotion, moral, philosophical, and social concerns reflected in visual images, changing notions of both the artist and the individual in society, the roles of male and female, and the theme of love.

When Offered Fall.
