Join us in discovering the richness of Italy's artistic heritage, from ancient Roman ruins to opulent Baroque churches. The seminar will focus on the works of the great artists of the Renaissance, including figures like Michelangelo and Raphael. By pondering their art in its original context, in places like the Sistine Chapel, we can consider why and how certain artists achieved such greatness. The seminar will be based in Florence and Rome, with day trips to cities such as Siena, and our cultural journey will begin with a pre-trip component of conversational Italian lessons so you can engage with the people we meet and immerse yourself in Italian life.
Prerequisite: Art 188: Masters of the Renaissance (offered Spring '13) or permission of the instructors. Students with previous are history experience or who are taking an equivalent course on another campus in the spring semester may contact Professor Campbell to request exemption from Art 188.
