ARTH 3433 - Northern Renaissance Art

Credits: 3

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

Description: Students in this course are introduced to the painting, sculpture, prints, and architecture produced during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in Northern Europe. Students learn primarily about the arts produced in the German and Dutch speaking lands during that period. This was a time of profound religious, social, scientific, and political transformations that greatly impacted artistic production. In addition to the impact of the Reformation, the changing patterns of patronage, and the rise of new media, students examine the careers of individual artists (Jan van Eyck, Hieronymus Bosch, and Albrecht Dürer, among others) and their distinct contribution to the arts of the period.
