Course Description

The city of Florence – often called the ‘Cradle of the Renaissance’ – is home to some of Western civilization’s greatest works of art and architecture. Let’s travel through the centuries to discover masterpieces by Florence’s prided painters, sculptors, inventors, and theorists – from Giotto to Michelangelo.

Visits to Florence’s museums and basilicas are an integral part of this course.

Course topics include:

· Overview of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence and the ‘rebirth’ of beauty, truth, and wisdom;

· Florence’s beginnings, starting with its foundation as a Roman colony;

· The development of humanism and the progressive mindset;

· Early Renaissance in Florence: Masters of the 14th and 15th centuries, from Cimabue to Botticelli;

· The role of patronage in Renaissance art, the Medici family, and the Platonic Academy;

· Late Renaissance in Florence: Art history’s famous competing geniuses, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

· An introduction to Mannerism
