Art History 106
Survey of Art History: Renaissance to Modern
List of Monuments
Marble, 1622/1625. Galleria Borghese, Rome.
Attached to this page, below, are the lists of the works of art covered in this class. Please note that this is not necessarily the order in which they will be or were discussed in the lecture. Very likely a few will be dropped and a few may be added, especially if the class shows a particular enthusiasm for a particular subject (Palladian villas, anyone?). I will let you know in class and the Web site will be updated. At any rate, the art listed here is also illustrated in your textbook, Gardner's Art Through the Ages, 11th edition, 2000. Numbers refer to the illustrations in Gardner.
The listings give:
place You will need to know the place--the location--of those works of art that are immovable, such as buildings (St. Peter's Basilica, Rome), frescoes (Masaccio's Holy Trinity in the church of Santa Maria Novella, Florence) or are just too big to pick up and carry away (the the Arc de Triomphe, Paris)
date You will need to give a date when you write about art. For this course, you will use what are called "Bracket Dates": conventional divisions, listed at this link, as your date. The actual date is supplied in class and on the slide lists, basically for your information. If you wish, you may use these on the exams, but if you are off by more than 25 years it will be a wrong answer.
The quizzes and exams will consist mainly of some combination of:
|I||short slide identifications (1 minute each: artist, title/subject, date, location if architecture or immovable)|
|II||short discussion questions You are asked to identify the work as above and provide other information as requested.|
|III||Slide comparisons, in which you are shown two slides side by side and asked to write a paragraph discussing the reason for the comparison (6 minutes each). Click on the link to find out all about this delightful examination opportunity!|
Note that the page(s) at each link below can be printed out for your convenience.
