Course Description

Venetian Renaissance art deserves a unique place in this period of art history. Unfortunately, the contribution of many of its important artists such as Giorgione and the Bellini family has not been emphasized enough. This class explores the city’s unique culture and its reliance on the sea, the reliance which at once separated it from other Italian cities and yet created opportunities for artists to reveal its great splendor and mystery. This includes the introduction of oil paint which allowed artists to explore the subtleties and beauty of light and color so important in Venetian Renaissance art.
