Beginning with the frescoes of the late 1200’s from the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, this course covers the most important artists of the 1300’s, 1400’s, and early 1500’s. Students are guided through the major artistic developments of these centuries from the spatial discoveries of Giotto, to the mathematical discovery of perspective, and on to the rebirth of interest in the classical world. The course covers historical and political events and analyzes their influence on the artistic production. Many class sessions are held on-site in museums and churches to enhance the in-class slide lectures
