The Italian Proto-Renaissance To Mannerism

This course focuses on developing literacy in the art of the Italian Renaissance, identifying the effects that the Renaissance had on the arts of Italy, and discovering the ways in which specific historical developments impacted those arts from the end of the thirteenth century to the end of the sixteenth century. The Renaissance marked a shift in the ways in which individuals perceived their world. A new outlook was emerging—one that was characterized by, among other things, increased humanism and a renewed interest in the cultures of Classical Antiquity (all within a Christian framework). This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Art History 206)
