ART HISTORY FROM THE RENAISSANCE THROUGH IMPRESSIONISM
January 7, 2020 @ 1:30 pm$220. – $265.
This course is designed to introduce students to the wonders of art history, beginning with the Italian Renaissance and its important experiments in perspective and realism. Brilliant and colorful figures such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo will enliven the study of the Italian Renaissance, and 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 Rembrandt and Caravaggio, who was adept with both paintbrush and sword. The Neoclassical and Romantic Ages, with their themes of honor and adventure, will lead to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism—the water lilies of Claude Monet and the starlight of Vincent van Gogh.
