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, 12th edition, 2006. Numbers refer to the illustrations in Gardner.

For quizzes and exams you will need to know, and this List will show you:

The artist,

The title/subject,

The location You will need to know the The location--the place--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)

The 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 below, as your date. The actual date is supplied in class and on the slide lists, basically for your background information.


We will be using the Slide comparison format for the quizzes. You will be shown two slides side by side and asked to identify them and then write a paragraph discussing the reason for the comparison (5 minutes each). Click on the link to find out all about this delightful examination opportunity!
