ART HISTORY FROM THE RENAISSANCE THROUGH IMPRESSIONISM
This course is designed to introduce you to the wonders of art history. Beginning with the Italian Renaissance and its important experiments in perspective and realism, we will see how art has developed over the centuries. Brilliant and colorful figures such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo will enliven our study of the Italian Renaissance. The Northern Renaissance, with the enigmatic mirrors of Jan van Eyck and the scientifically-minded explorations of Albrecht Durer, will be considered as well. This will be followed by the flamboyant Baroque Age, including the work of Caravaggio, the great artist/duelist, and of Rembrandt. The Neoclassical and Romantic Ages, with their themes of honor and adventure, will be next. The course will conclude with Impressionism and Post-Impressionism – the water lilies of Claude Monet and the starlight of Vincent van Gogh.
