ART 4650 - Early Renaissance Italian Painting

The transition from medieval to Renaissance ways of picturing reality has been decisive in world history, forming a principal current of the pre-history and background of our screen technologies today. Students learn the unfolding of early Renaissance painting in Italy, when pioneering and exceptionally creative artists of the quattrocento brought forth ways of picturing the here and now anew, all the while sustaining the culture’s spiritual and religious convictions about a transcendent divine. Artists studied include Masaccio, Masolino, Fra Angelico, Fra Filippo Lippi, Uccello, Castagno, Piero della Francesca, Mantegna, Botticelli, the Bellini, Ghirlandaio, and more.
