ART 332 - Seminar in Italian Renaissance Art


1 unit(s)
Topic for 2021/22b: Reconsidering Raphael. Raphael devised new modes of designing and making art that changed the course of western visual culture. He has long been known as “the prince of painters,” but this label ignores the astonishing range of his activities: Raphael was also an accomplished architect, landscape designer, archeologist, draftsman, and designer of prints and tapestries. And despite his reputation as a cool classicist, he actually worked in an astonishing variety of styles and modes. This seminar reconsiders Raphael’s extraordinary career, taking a comprehensive view of his varied projects. We also examine his writings and his close collaborations with literary figures including Baldassare Castiglione, addressing the relation of text and image in Renaissance creative processes. This holistic approach allows a new appreciation of Raphael’s brilliance and originality, and the reasons his works served as models for artists down to modernism.  Yvonne Elet.
