This course is designed to introduce students to the art and architecture of the Italian peninsula from the Ancient Greeks to the Renaissance. Special consideration will be given to the relation of the works of art to their cultural, historical, and intellectual contexts. No previous experience in art history is required. This course meets twice a week: on Tuesdays, we meet in the classroom and on Thursdays we meet directly onsite in Florence. You’ll participate in classroom lectures, discussions, small group assignments, site visits, and field study.
Registration restriction: Students may not register for both this course and HOA 320.
Course-related fee: A fee will be charged to cover the costs of study tours to Rome and Fiesole plus Florence site visits (2018–2019 fee = $185). Other all-school field trips may be required or recommended.
Department: History of Art
