This lecture course is an intensive study of Renaissance art in Italy and begins with an examination of the early Renaissance in Siena and Florence and artists such as Duccio and Giotto. We then move to a discussion of the development of art and ideas in 15th-century Florence and examine artists such as Brunelleschi, Donatello, Massaccio, Fra Angelico, Piero della Francesca and Botticelli. We conclude with an examination of the High Renaissance (Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo) and the work of the Venetians (Bellini, Giorgione and Titian).
