Do you wonder what inspired Leornardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo and other significant artists of 16th Century Europe? In this class, we will examine the major social and theological shifts that took place in Italy, Germany and other centers of European power and how those changes are reflected in seminal works of the High Renaissance, Mannerism and the Baroque era. Through lecture and discussion, students will learn how artists attempted to best the work of their predecessors, pushing technical boundaries in various media while staying in the good graces of their patrons and either one of the two denominations of the Christian faith.

FOR SPRING QUARTER 2020 In order to accommodate our students and continue to provide an enriched learning experience during COVID-19, we have adapted this course to be taught remotely via Zoom during the regularly-scheduled meeting times.
