YEAR COURSE: Examine the visual arts in an era of profound cultural, intellectual and social change.
Chart important stylistic developments from High Gothic to the renaissance revival of classical antiquity, the rise of realistic representation and the emergence of artistic personalities. Consider patterns of patronage: the collective enterprise of the great gothic cathedrals, the magnificence of princes and popes, and the growing spending power of the middle classes. Discover how the arts were affected by devotional practices and by humanist scholarship, and investigate the materials and techniques involved in artistic production. Study the work of well-known painters, sculptors and architects from Giotto to Leonardo da Vinci alongside the decorative arts, including tapestry, stained glass, goldsmiths’ work and maiolica, all superbly represented in the V&A’s acclaimed Medieval and Renaissance Galleries.
