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 and on-site visits examine his drawing, painting, sculpture and architecture in the contexts of the art and patronage of his own time, starting with a study of Classical Roman Antiquity.

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 2096). 

Special Notes: 

This course has two course numbers, ARTH 2096 denotes the Writing Intensive course option.
