ARTH 30 RENAISSANCE AND BAROQUE ART

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
This course is a survey of the painting, sculpture, and architecture produced throughout Europe between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries. Beginning with the cultural changes of the late Gothic period, the course examines the reintroduction of the classical aesthetic by Renaissance artists, the rise of humanism, and the subsequent visual response of the Catholic Church to developing Protestant institutions during the Baroque period. The course concludes with a survey of late Baroque (Rococo) art as defined by the French court. Works of art and architecture are discussed in light of their unique cultural and historical context.
