The module will provide a survey of western European art from the late Middle Ages to the end of the eighteenth century. Each lecture will focus on a particular work of art or monument, chosen to illustrate not only the achievement of great individual artists (including Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Rembrandt), but also different media (painting, sculpture, architecture, print-making). Attention will also be paid to different art-historical approaches to the art of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
