This subject interrogates painting, sculpture and architecture in Italy, France, Spain and the Netherlands in the 17th century. The artists on who most attention is focused include Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Annibale Carracci, Domenichino, Guido Reni, Bernini, Velazquz, Borromini, Rubens, Rembrandt and Poussin. This subject aims to give an introduction to the main issues to be found in the art historical literature on these artists, and so the subject deals with a wide range of questions and themes. These include colour and chiaroscuro, theory, practice and the rise of academies, the representation of sexuality, interpretation/iconography, gender, biography and postmodern readings.
