A class that charts important stylistic developments from High Gothic to the renaissance revival of classical antiquity, the rise of realistic representation and the emergence of artistic personalities. It will consider patterns of patronage: the collective enterprise of the great gothic cathedrals, the magnificence of princes and popes, and the growing spending power of the middle classes. It will also uncover how the arts were affected by devotional practices and by humanist scholarship, and investigate the materials and techniques involved in artistic production.
