Course Description: This course explores a range of alternative approaches to some of the most famous works of art in the Western tradition, including works by Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Titian. Topics include problems of definition in High Renaissance and Mannerist art; Rome under Julius II and the creation of an imperial capital; Venetian visual poesie; art and dynastic display in Medicean Florence; civic ritual and public space; eroticism and mythology at princely courts; and portraiture and gender. This engages students directly with the work of art, through close analysis of its physical, visual, and spatial characteristics. It approaches the complex functions of the works through focused engagement concerning what they look like, how they are made, how they were experienced visually, physically, spatially, and how they communicate through specific manipulations of form, space, color, light, etc.
