ART 541

Seminar in Renaissance Art

Peter Parshall

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

During the Renaissance, printmaking emerged as a powerful and pervasive mode of artistic expression that redefined originality and transformed visual communication. Variously experimental, documentary, propagandistic, proto-scientific, and illustrational objects, prints were market-sensitive as well as aesthetically adventurous and often elitist in their content. Centered as much as possible on prints from the collection, this course considers material and technical issues as well as broader historical and interpretive topics. Artists include Schongauer, Dürer, Lucas van Leyden, Bruegel, Mantegna, and Raphael.
