This class is a preview and survey of the upcoming North Carolina Museum of Art exhibition, Glory of Venice: Masterworks of the Renaissance, which focuses on Renaissance painting in Venice from the second half of the 1400s to the early 1500s. Over the course of 8 weeks we will take a close look at Italian art as it led up to the Renaissance in Florence and Rome. We then turn our attention to the very special but less studied Venetian Renaissance. Lecture (plus questions). Facilitated Discussion. Viewing Videos. Field Trip(s).
