Course Description
This lecture course examines paintings, drawings, sculpture, and architecture produced in Italy from Renaissance
precursors in Giotto (ca. 1300) to Mannerist artists in Florence (1520s-30s). We will learn about works by artists
including Alberti, Fra Angelico, Bellini, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Ghiberti, Giorgione, Leonardo, Mantegna,
Michelangelo, Piero della Francesca, Pisanello, Raphael, and
Titian. In roughly chronological order we’ll follow the
development of style in the major artistic centers of Florence, Venice, and Rome, with (virtual) side trips to the
courts of Urbino and Mantova. The course will situate style within social context and focus on the function of the
visual for contemporary audiences.
Students are required to read primary source doc
uments, the textbook, and excerpts from Barnet’s
Short Guide to
Writing About Art
. The first half of the course will be dedicated to developing the vocabulary and visual literacy
required to describe art of any kind, alongside a study of the progress of Florentine art in the 15
century. The
second half will move to a more thematic presentation of the material.

A Note on Notes

recommended, as writing on site visits is awkward. Bring your notebook or sketchbook on field trips as you may be
required to tear out a page for an impromptu assignment.
