3(3 + 0)

Prerequisite: ARTH 1700 or permission of the department

This course is a study of a particular artist, group of artists, region or issue as it relates to Baroque art during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Stylistic development, patronage, iconography, and cultural context are explored in addition to considerations of materials, techniques, and aesthetic theories of the period. Major religious and political changes and how these were reflected in the visual arts and debates over the role of art are among the issues covered. The course may focus on specific artists such as Caravaggio, Bernini, Rubens, Rembrandt, thematic issues such as Everyday Life in Dutch Art, or regional topics such as Flemish Art of the 17th Century. (This course may be repeated for credit under different topics for up to 9 credit hours.)
