Learning objectives

The course is dedicated to understanding and putting in context the main subject matters in Art History from Middle Ages to the XIX century. The course will also discuss the main methods of analysis in Art History. Lessons will focus on: - Periods and designations - Analysis of specific themes: the figure of the artist; the main genres; the perspective; the problem of time in the visual arts. - Methods of analyzing works of art. This course aims at providing the students with the basic tools that can be helpful in recognizing the main styles and the prevailing iconographies with autonomy; recognizing the most widespread genres, their development and their fortune; dealing with the cultural arguments involved in the way their designations were created in a critical way; being aware of the essential primary sources; mastering the main consultation tools for bibliographic research. During the course, students are frequently encouraged to verify the reliability of the theoretical statements they have learnt from the teacher (or the tutor, during the seminaries) by analyzing the works of art by their own (the main pieces will be discussed during the lessons and their images will be loaded on the e-learning website); furthermore, students are encouraged to express their opinions on specific problems concerning some particular works of art, so that they can develop their skills in forming their personal judgement.
