This second course will explore the High Renaissance style which emerged at the beginning of 1500 driven by the emergence of The Artistic Genius, epitomised by Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian. The course is introduced by an examination of Vasari’s Lives of the Artists and goes on to study key artists of the period from Italy and Northern Europe, looking at their careers and major works, relating them to the cultural, political and social environment in which they worked, and highlighting their unique contribution to the second part of the Renaissance which ‘decayed’ into Mannerism, best exemplified by Giulio Romano.
