Course Description

This presentation is a case study in late in 14th century art you never thought you would be interested in. Usually referred to as The Great Mortality (1348-53), approximately 50% of the Florentine population was dead by 1353, dropping from 100,000 to 60,000 overnight - the beautiful city of Siena fared worse. How did artists portray this horrific period; why was Giotto’s art rejected? Was it a hop, skip and a jump to the Renaissance or did something else happen? Take a lesson from the artists and consider – are we as far away from this late Medieval culture as we think?
