ARTH 3441 - Spanish and Italian Baroque Art

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1700 with a "C-" or better or permission of the department.

Description: Students in this course are introduced to the painting, sculpture, and architecture produced during the seventeenth century in Southern Europe. Students are exposed to the arts produced in the city of Rome, the flagship of the Catholic Church and the most important artistic center in the West during that period. Commonly known as the Golden Age, this was a time of profound religious, social, scientific, and political transformations that greatly impacted artistic theory and practice. Students in this course examine the careers of individual artists (the Carracci, Caravaggio, Bernini, and Velázquez, among others) and their distinct contributions to the arts of the period, as well as the impact of the Counter-Reformation, the changing patterns of patronage, and the rise of art collecting.
