The Art of the Italian Renaissance

Mary Ann Sures

Presented at: IRM 1994

Date: Jul 16, 1994

Based on the premise that art reflects the prevailing philosophy of its era, these lectures trace the development of Renaissance art and relate it to the intellectual climate of the period. Mrs. Sures illustrates how, from Masaccio to Michelangelo, in subject and in style, Renaissance painting and sculpture were visual expressions of the renewed interest in man and the value of man's life on earth. Subjects include: the role of classical antiquity, Biblical themes, anatomy, perspective, the nude, landscape, and portraiture. The lectures are designed to encourage you to become "Renaissance-literate," by providing a context in which to integrate further knowledge of this brilliant period in the history of Western civilization.
