Seminar Description
Rome in the years around 1500 saw a flourishing of the visual arts that represented the culmination of the Renaissance ideals of humanism and classical beauty, despite the corruption of the papal court. A succession of popes–as both political and spiritual rulers of Rome–and others patronized geniuses like Michelangelo and Raphael, as well as their rivals and followers. Lectures, readings, and class discussion will unfold this dazzling and complex artistic moment.

Three sessions. $ 170/$153
