Course Description:

This course will introduce you to the art of Italy and Spain, c. 1590 to c. 1750. The first part of the course will examine the emergence of new forms of painting, sculpture, and architecture in the international milieu of Rome in the early decades of the seventeenth century and investigate the historical contexts of these changes. With this foundation, we will then explore the subsequent development, dissemination, and transformation of these forms in Italy and Spain through themes drawn from recent scholarship. Learning Outcomes of the Course: You will gain familiarity with the painting, sculpture, architecture, and ephemeral arts of seventeenth-century Italy and Spain and with the themes which have structured scholarly inquiry into these works. You will build skills of visual analysis, critical reading, and evaluation of scholarly arguments in art history. You will gain experience in the practice of various forms of art historical writing, including visual analysis and critical analysis of a scholarly article.
