(NOT OFFERED IN 2010-2011)
This course is a study of the European artistic movements that followed the Renaissance period. We begin by examining the second Renaissance that took place in Rome in the early 1600s and the impact that the art of Carracci, Caravaggio and Bernini had throughout Europe, especially in Catholic countries such as France and Spain. We then examine the art of Hals, Rembrandt and Vermeer, which was fostered in Holland, a Protestant republic. Rococo painting will be studied mostly as it appeared in France (Watteau, Boucher, Chardin and Fragonard) and England (Hogarth, Reynolds and Gainsborough).
Anti-requisite: Students who previously took VISC 2B34 may not take this course for further credit.
