Italian Renaissance Art


The Renaissance was a cultural movement that profoundly affected European intellectual life in the early modern period. Starting in Italy, and spreading to the rest of Europe by the 16th Century, its influence was felt in literature, philosophy, art, music, politics, science, religion, and other aspects of intellectual inquiry.
 
This course will explain and outline the ideas and artists who made the Italian Renaissance one of the high points in Western Art History. Beginning in the 14th Century and working through to the 16th Century, the sessions will explain how new ideas re-shaped the way people thought and how they made art.
 
During the 5 sessions course, we  will review the great artistic achievements and other creative initiatives of the re-birth of the Classical styles, discussing the influences and works of the Great Masters who made the period. Giotto, Donatello, Fra Angelico, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Titian are just a few of the names that will be examined while one session will be dedicated to Michelangelo including a short documentary showing masterpieces such as David, Sistine Chapel, Pieta, The Last Judgement and many more in breath-taking details.
