Renaissance Florence

Art in Renaissance Florence surveys the historical factors which made Florence such a receptive setting for the patronage and cultivation of intellectual and artistic ideas during the Renaissance. A constellation of artists and architects, including  Brunelleschi, Ghiberti, Donatello, Masaccio, Botticelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Pontormo, Suor Plautilla Nelli, Vasari, Bronzino, Cellini, Caravaggio and Artemisia Gentileschi all created ground-breaking works for Florentine institutions and families that are considered milestones in the history of Western art today. This course includes on-site visits to the Brancacci Chapel, the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, the church of San Lorenzo, the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, the convent of Sant’ Apollonia, the convent of San Marco, the church of Orsanmichele and the church of Santa Maria Novella and lectures in the Harold Acton Library overlooking the Arno River in Florence.
