ARTH 230 - Baroque Art & Architecture
This course concerns art and architecture in Italy, Flanders, France, Spain, the Dutch Republic, and England from circa 1580 to 1680, the Baroque period. This exciting era was characterized by fundamental changes from religious reform to scientific discoveries and the growth of political absolutism. By considering art and architecture in their cultural contexts, we will explore how these developments informed the style, subject matter, and functions of art in society. Focusing on cosmopolitan centers in Europe, we will study artists, art collecting and patronage, the display of art, and the rise of landscape, still life, and genre painting.
