Renaissance Art Reconsidered

Course code 74307

  Course is not currently open for enrolment

This introduction to Renaissance art questions the traditional geographical and social boundaries of this subject – one of the most traditional in the art history discipline – in line with contemporary developments in academic research. Instead of focusing on the Italian peninsula and Florence in particular (the tendency for most histories of Renaissance art c.1420-1520), this course ventures to England, the Netherlands, France, Italy and Crete.
It explores the diversity of artistic practice during the Renaissance, including art forms such as prints, tapestries, manuscripts, painting, sculpture and architecture. It is based on a course from the Open University UK.

Note: This course replaces 74305 Culture and Identities.
