On the Web Sites and How to Use Them

Web sites will form an important part of your study for this course. If you haven't done so already, you will need to activate your computer account at Rutgers. You can use your computer at home, but you will need to be able to see the images and access the Web. This page explains the different types of Web sites for this class, and lists some others that you may find helpful.

Shown: Jacopo Sansovino.  Detail, Peace.
Loggetta, Piazza San Marco, Venice.

Web Sites Specifically for this Course

  1. As you've already seen on the first page, you will find pages attached to this site describing all of the course requirements, how to take the quizzes, midterm, final, and how to write the research paper. These will not be handed out individually, but you may wish to print them out yourself (the X-term is the best for this).
  2. You are to read some of Vasari's Lives of the Artists. These are attached to the Schedule at the appropriate points, and you can also find them at: (http://www.efn.org/~acd/Vite/ VasariLives.html. Please note that these are the only Web sites from which you may quote for your paper.
  3. Pages from several other Web sites that I've been working on are threaded through this site. These are here to give you as much visual material to work with as possible, but you are not required to memorize all of them! I've chosen sites with as little text as possible. Beyond noting basic identifications, ignore the text on these Web sites. Use the lectures, your readings, and your own visual studies.
