Students who complete a final paper on a pre-approved topic are awarded 1 extra unit. Maximum units for this course are 6. The course offers students a general view of the history of Medieval and Renaissance art. Students learn to use the skills necessary in analyzing artistic productions of the period, while becoming familiar with the principal masterpieces of Medieval and Renaissance art. Special attention is placed on methodology. The course is divided in three parts. Part I is an introduction to different approaches to a work of art (style, iconography, embodiment), and addresses key methodological issues. Part II offers, in chronological order, the main lines of Art History in Italy from the beginning of Middle Ages to the middle of the sixteenth century: Late Antique and Early Christian Art, “Barbaric” Art, the medieval revivals (Carolingian and Othonian), Romanesque Art, Gothic Art, Early Renaissance art, and High Renaissance art. Part III focuses on a specific topic, which is "Bentivoglio Art in Bologna 1450-1506" for the 18-19 year. The course includes seminars and/or site visits by the instructor and collaborators as well as visual and PowerPoint presentations.
