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 of the wider visual culture.  Throughout the semester we will explore how increased preoccupation with distinctly artistic concerns is intertwined with contemporaneous developments in religion and science.
