This course will include a richly illustrated introduction to some of the greatest Western artists, including Bellini, Carpaccio, Giorgione, Titian, Palma Vecchio, Tintoretto and Veronese. In these classes we will explore religious paintings (Titian’s Assumption); poesie (Giorgione’s Tempesta); nudes (Titian’s Venus of Urbino) and mural schemes including the Venetian Scuole. Venetian culture shaped these artists’ technical and stylistic innovations and their works would go on to influence painting for the next 250 years!
