ARTV204 Renaissance Art

The visual and cultural development of European art in the Renaissance period from the early 1400s to the 1600s.

ARTV 204 Renaissance Art examines the art and culture from a time that became increasingly defined by innovation and the formation of new artistic practices and traditions. It is focused on selected paintings, sculpture and print-making from that time - works that encapsulate those changes. We will be examining the artistic traditions, the cultural and theoretical complexities of that time.
