This course traces the development of the Italian baroque in architecture, sculpture and painting and considers a variety of themes relevant to Baroque artistic production, including: the impact of the Reformation and the Catholic Counter Reformation; economic influences; central versus peripheral trends; issues of gender and sexuality; patronage; urban planning and transformation; the artist, his workshop and rivalries; and seventeenth-century primary sources. The semester project will include a digital treatment of art historical content.
