F104 Fall 2019 Early Renaissance Art in Italy
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, Oct. 29–Nov. 12
Three sessions
Instructor: Roz Hoagland

Small changes in art in the 13th century blossomed into the glorious Early Renaissance of 14th century Florence. Painters, sculptors, and architects were inspired by examples from ancient Rome. Brunelleschi and Alberti developed a new approach to architecture from their study of Roman buildings. Donatello led the pathway to increasingly realistic sculpture. Masaccio's frescoes demonstrated new ways to show depth on a flat surface with the development of perspective. This course will examine masterpieces in Florence and other locations in Italy to follow the invention of this new art, noting the contributions of artists from Giotto to Michelangelo.
Roz Hoagland is a retired art historian. She taught art history at Northern Virginia Community College for 40 years and has given lectures at the US State Department Training Center.
