OVERVIEW

An analysis of the modern era, which is a period of complex artistic production rich with innovative solutions, is presented in the light of the current debate on visual culture: students can capture the extraordinary communicative models elaborated in those circumstances as a vital example of the relationship between commissioning clients, artists, the public and the role and use of images. 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The “History of Modern Art” course aims to familiarise students with the dynamics of artistic production from the beginning of the Renaissance to the beginning of the 19th century and to garner interpretative models of those phenomena in particular to tie artistic artefacts to culture, society and the territorial fabric in which they originated. 

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The objective of becoming familiar with the dynamics of artistic production in the period under consideration by connecting artistic artefacts to the culture, society and territorial fabric in which they originated is proposed as a method of connecting historical, artistic material with current affairs and issues concerning conservation and enhancement of cultural assets. 

Teaching methods

Lectures with PowerPoint presentations; discussions with students on themes tackled, assessment in museum contexts.
