A selected topic from a specific period in the history of art will be examined. In Rome, ARTH 2098 is the Writing Intensive version of ARTH 3301 - Michelangelo.
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.

In Rome, the non-Writing Intensive version of this course is ARTH 3301.
