ARTH 2320 Northern Renaissance Art

This course explores the luminously beautiful artistic production of Northern Europe (particularly the Netherlands and Germany) from approximately 1400 to 1600. We will examine the paintings, sculpture, and graphic arts of the period in the context of private, civic, and religious patronage, the rise of the art market, international artistic exchange, Humanist theory and culture, and the consequences of the Protestant Reformation. Artists to be studied include Jan van Eyck, Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, and Pieter Bruegel. Class meetings will consist of lectures integrating active discussion as well as in-class writing assignments. This course is Writing Intensive. Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1010  or ARTH 1100
