Medieval Florence

Art in Medieval Florence covers the artistic awakening that took place in Florence during the twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Against a backdrop of rapid economic growth, turbulent political change, famine and war, artists including Cimabue, Arnolfo di Cambio, Giotto, Andrea Pisano, Taddeo and Agnolo Gaddi skilfully catered to new contemporary religious, cultural and political aspirations, forging a new style and marking the beginning of the dominant figurative tradition in Western European art. Over the course of four weeks course includes on-site visits to the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the church of San Miniato al Monte, the Palazzo Davanzati, the church of the Ognissanti, the church of Santa Maria Novella, the church of Orsanmichele, the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo and the church of Santa Croce and lectures in the Harold Acton Library overlooking the Arno River in Florence.
