Toward the end of the 14th century, a handful of Italian thinkers declared that they were living in a new age. The Italian Renaissance was a remarkable period of intellectual, political and cultural development. A revival of interest in the Classical world and Humanist ideology set the framework for the developments of this rebirth in Italy. Against a backdrop of political stability and growing prosperity was a flowering of philosophy, literature and especially art. This course explores the emergence of the “window onto the world” that is the art of the Italian Renaissance. Beginning in the early 1300s with the work of Giotto, we explore those artists who revived Greco-Roman traditions and sought to capture the experience of the individual and the beauty of the natural world, reaching its zenith in the late 15th and early 16th centuries with the masterworks of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael.
