The subject focuses in depth on the art and culture of Renaissance Italy, from 1300 to 1570. In part we will examine the lives and works of some of the most significant artists in that period from Giotto, Masaccio, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Giorgione, Raphael, Titian and Michelangelo, in relation to the artistic theories of the period and the models they set for later artistic futures. The subject will explore the critical interpretations of works of art, spectatorship, patronage, the place of art in daily life in Renaissance Italy, the scientific analysis of works of art, restoration history and workshop practice.
