ARTH 364 - Sight and Insight: Painting in Early Modern Europe

Spring (3) Wu (College 200, ALV)

The nature and reliability of human vision was a focus of debate in Early Modern Europe. This course considers the role of the artists and the artefacts they made in shaping the attitudes f the wider visual culture.  Throughout the semester we will explore how increased preoccupation with distinctily artistic concerns in intertwined with contemporaneous developments in religion and science. (This course is anchored in the ALV domain, and also considers aspects of the CSI domain.)
