  • Subject: Art History
  • Semester(s) Offered: Spring
  • Credit Hours: 4
  • Description:

    Profoundly impressive both for his technique and expressive content - emotional, dramatic, heroic, but always human - Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) continues to be a vital element in the history of art, as he was during the Renaissance. Weekly class lectures examine his drawing, painting, sculpture and architecture in the context of the art and patronage of his own time, starting with a study of Classical Roman Antiquity. NOTE: This course is taught in Rome.

  • In Italy, in-depth, direct viewing of his works such as the Pietà, Sistine Chapel and Moses are matched by lectures and readings in class, and an academic excursion to Florence offers further access to his oeuvre. This course can be taken as a Writing Intensive course (ARTH 2098) or an Honors course (ARTH 2910).

  • Special Notes:

    This course has two course numbers: ARTH 2098 denotes the Writing Intensive course option.
