ART 272G - Intensive Course Abroad: Art, Memory, and Poetics of Place (4 Cr.)

(GEN. ED. #3)
An intensive course abroad in Rome and Prato, Italy. Students will embark on a journey through Renaissance and Baroque Italy. As we visit the painting, sculpture, architecture, and urban environs of early modern Italy, we will consider the decoration and poetics—or making— of these spaces, with particular emphasis on how painters, sculptors, and architects embellished the environs around them to communicate a variety of messages and meanings. How do painting and sculpture interact with their physical contacts to render meaning? How did the visual arts of early modern Italy connect with their various audiences? The course will pair art history and studio components, so time will be spent studying sacred and domestic sites through lecture and through drawing and sketching on site. Prerequisites: ART 102 , ART 103 , ART 114 , or ART 225 . Winter and Summer. Variable. Massey, Oettinger.
